With a wonderful variety of activities and attractions, there really is something for everyone; whether it’s a walk with an alpaca, taking a tractor and trailer ride around the Showground, taking part in a spot of archery, learning some circus skills, or meeting your favourite farmyard animals in the petting zone!

If flowers are more your thing head over to our Floral Art & Design Zone to marvel at the blooming brilliant displays. New for 2024, we are delighted to collaborate with the North Midlands Area of the National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS), who are hosting their Area Show with us – the theme is ‘JOY – Celebrating the joy that flowers bring’.

Rosie Crust, Head of Charity says “Countryside Lincs 2024 promises to be an exciting and unforgettable event. We invite everyone to join us in celebrating the arrival of spring, and to enjoy some fantastic family fun; exploring food, farming, and the countryside."
