The Bloem Show 2017

Join us for a Monster Show

The annual Bloem Show will again be combining agriculture, entertainment and trade activities all in one spot! The show is the Free State’s largest annual Show, with this year’s promising to be just as big, if not bigger!

The 2018 theme is “Join us for a Monster” and attendees can enjoy a wide variety of cultural activities along with entertainment over a period of 9 days. The Show has been running for many years now and offers its visitors more than 350 exhibitors plus the largest number of craft stalls in the country along with fun things-to-do for the whole family. For the kids there is a Vodacom Train and an awesome amusement park with thrilling rides and adventure activities, this will keep the kids occupied for hours on end. The highlight of the Show is always the National, Regional and Provincial agricultural championships of farm animals and livestock. These showcases are the largest in the country from cattle and other smaller stock to thoroughbred horses. If this is your cup of tea, don’t waste any time and book now!

2017 saw a few new additions to the show which included a variety of outdoor exhibitions as well as a 4x4 track. Not to be missed are still the old-time favourites like the sheep shearing demonstrations, dairy competition, Jack Russell competition, music festival, plenty of great food and so much more! If you have been coming here every year or if this will be your first time, you are in for a great time!

Get your tickets early and look out for the various discounts on offer so you don’t miss out on this value-for-money shopping experience and all day fun for the family and your friends!
