Agriculture Show just keeps on growing!

Cayman Brac Agriculture Show

This year’s Agriculture Shows dates are: Ash Wednesday, 22 February, Grand Cayman, Saturday, 25 February, Cayman Brac and Saturday, 25 March on Little Cayman.

With just three weeks to go, preparations for this year’s Agriculture Shows are well underway. If you haven’t been before, then you’re in for a treat! The 45th Agriculture Show is a fabulous celebration all things local – crops, food and heritage and culture and a terrific day out, too. The same goes for the Brac and Little 
Cayman shows.

The Grand Cayman show, which is in its 45th year, is the best place to find out what’s going on in the farming community. If people are interested in keeping chickens, want to learn about farming, or enjoy traditional arts and craft, not to mention local foods or are just looking to enjoy nature, then it’s the place to be.

There will be many activities inside the Agriculture Pavilion in Lower Valley. One of the new attractions this year will be an interactive tent where farmers will engage the public with talks about what is happening in the farming community and provide backyard farming tips. A Youth Services Culinary Competition – for children aged 10 to 14 who have been attending cooking camps held by the Youth Services Department and taught by one of the chefs at the Ritz-Carlton – will end with a cook-off and cooking demonstration.

Patrons will enjoy the he very popular pony rides, line dancing demonstration, demonstration and rodeo by the Equestrian Society, the Beautiful Baby Competition and a wide variety of arts and craft. The 45th annual Agriculture Show offers its usual extravaganza of colour, competition and showmanship, along with displays of horses, ponies, cattle, sheep, poultry, pigs and goats and a petting zoo.

The Cayman Islands Agriculture Show, in partnership with the Department of Agriculture and Ministry of Agriculture and corporate sponsors A.L. Thompson and LIME, is the largest event family event on all three islands.

“We are committed to the farmers in the Cayman Islands. My administration fully supports the three shows which bring together the farming community, entrepreneurs sponsors and the public, in general. I would like to encourage the public to attend, support our local farmers and have lots of fun in the process,” stated Deputy Premier and Minister responsible for Agricultural Hon. Juliana O’Connor-Connolly.
