In a celebration of agricultural prowess and community spirit, the Balmoral Show sponsored by Ulster Bank, triumphantly returns to the Eikon Exhibition Centre for its 155th show from the 15th - 18th May 2024. Marking a significant milestone in its storied history, this annual extravaganza will once again bring together farmers, producers, and enthusiasts from across the region and further afield to showcase the very best of Northern Ireland's agricultural heritage.

The Balmoral Show holds a special place in the hearts of many, serving as a vibrant hub for agricultural innovation, competition, education, and entertainment. The extensive grounds of the Eikon Exhibition Centre provide the perfect backdrop for this illustrious event, offering ample space for exhibitors, attendees, and livestock alike.

Visitors will make their way through the iconic red arch – freshly recoloured for 2024, and be greeted by a spectacle of sights, sounds, and smells that can only be found at the Balmoral Show. From the proud displays of livestock to the bustling Eikon Shopping Pavilion, NI Food & Drink Pavilion, Makers’ Market and Sustainability Village, every corner of the exhibition centre will be bursting with activity and energy.

One of the most cherished aspects of the Balmoral Show is its ability to bring people together, fostering connections and camaraderie among farmers, industry professionals, and the general public. Whether admiring prize-winning livestock, or simply enjoying a delicious meal made from locally sourced ingredients, attendees are united by a shared passion for agriculture and a deep appreciation for the land.

In addition to its role as a showcase for agricultural excellence, the Balmoral Show also plays a vital role in promoting education and awareness about the importance of agriculture in our daily lives. With talks from industry experts and the abundance of demonstrations, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about everything from sustainability to the latest trends in agriculture, making the show a valuable learning experience for visitors of all ages.

The 155th Balmoral Show promises to deliver an unforgettable experience. Don’t miss a great day out with over 8 hours of family entertainment in the main arena, 3,900 head of livestock competing, an array of shopping opportunities, industry professional talks, Sensory Bus, Fun Fair, Kidz Farm, Food Court, Sheep Shearing, Downtown Show Stage, Mini Land Rover Experience, Healthy Horticulture and of course a much anticipated opportunity to meet Darcy – Balmoral Show mascot.
