Aberfeldy Show and Games

Aberfeldy Show and Games


In August each year the lovely little Highland Perthshire town of Aberfeldy comes alive with The Atholl & Breadalbane Agricultural Show and Highland Gathering. After over 60 years in Aberfeldy’s Victoria Park, the event moved to a new site in 2008 - the picturesque setting of Wade’s Park, just on the outskirts of town. This move proved to be very popular with both exhibitors and spectators. More recently the Society has improved the access to the park and relocated the car park (to a drier part of the field). This beautiful setting, right beside the historic Wade’s Bridge and the River Tay is surrounded by lovely views to Weem Rock to the north and the hills of Glen Lyon to the west - what other event can boast such a magnificent backdrop?
