Annual Wilmslow Show

An annual summer event on a July Sunday in Wilmslow. In 2011 it is Sunday 10th July.

It features a Horticultural Show with a Classic Car Show, Fun Dog Show, Funfair, Falconry, Mini Zoo, Craft Marquee, Jazz Band, and lots of childrens' attractions. It takes place on the playing fields opposite Wilmslow High School. Details are on the Wilmslow Show's web site.

The show's former venue was the Carnival Fields off Water Lane and a small agricultural show was included, featuring animals from nearby farms. In recent years it has been held on the playing fields of Wilmslow High School and it has got bigger but the agricultural show was omitted in the 1991 Foot & Mouth outbreak and never returned. Going back even further there used to be Wilmslow Carnival, complete with a procession through the town.

It has often been plagued by rain. The 2007 show was cancelled due to the weather.
