Welcome to the website of the Echt Show !

In addition to showcasing all that’s best in livestock from the North East, this annual agricultural show offers many other attractions.

Thanks to funding from Aberdeenshire Council, as part of Scotland’s year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, there will be an additional marquee showcasing traditional crafts and music. Learn about native breeds, enjoy the nostalgia inspired by sight of the vintage tractors and also appreciate the dexterity of the sheep shearers and the farrier. Dishes cooked to traditional recipes, the elegance of the Highland Dancers and the strength of the Heavy Athletes – the heritage of the rural North East at its best. See you there!
