Turriff Show is a qualifier for the 2020 Highland Pony Society Youngstock Championship and there are in-hand, ridden and working harness classes.

On Sunday, one of the highlights is the Grand Parade of Horses, Ponies and Donkeys and on Monday you can witness one of the best displays of livestock in Scotland for the Grand Parade of Cattle and Clydesdale Horses. This year will see Turriff host the Scottish Limousin Grand Prix which takes place on the Monday. 

There are over 300 outdoor trade stands promoting all aspects of agriculture including arable, livestock, farm management and farm machinery and indoor trade stands offering a variety of items in the, Exhibition Marquee, Indoor Shopping Mall and Art and Craft Marquee.  There is an Industrial Marquee for exhibitors to gain a prize for their home-based products from Jams and Chutneys to Knitting and Sewing and in the Horticulture Marquee for displaying their various varieties of flowers and vegetables.  The Food and Drink Marquee will again be showcasing the finest produce that the North East of Scotland and the rest of Scotland has to offer, complete with tasting sessions and cookery demonstrations.

For the children, the Ferguson Hall provides a baby feeding and changing area with seating available for the grown-ups to take a well-earned rest while the children are kept busy with a host of different activities.
