It was initially held in Cowbridge but now takes place in the grounds of Fonmon Castle which has been its base since 1998.
There are more than 200 trade stands on the field. The show’s Food Hall features produce grown or manufactured in the Vale, and there’s a special Home Produce marquee featuring bakery and home-made preserves.
A Kennel Club-registered dog takes place at one side of the field whilst at the castle end of the compound visitors can see the cattle an sheep classes in competition
The horse competitions run in the main ring up until 15:00 when there is a spectacular Grand Parade of all the Prize Winning Animals.
