The Winterton Agricultural society was formed in 1872 to further the interests of a rapidly modernising agricultural community. For many years the society held a two day Agricultural Show and sports in the Picturesque Park at Winterton Show.
The Show attracted competitors from throughout Lincolnshire and the surrounding counties, building up an excellent reputation over the years.
Today the two day Show occupies over 20 acres, which the society now owns to accommodate the growing demand for trade stands, sideshows and entertainment, The Show caters for many agricultural and countryside pursuits involving all elements of the local and neighbouring communities. It successfully blends a variety of events appealing to both rural and town dwellers; as a consequence it is very well supported, drawing crowds in excess of twelve thousand, from across the region, the show goes from strength to strength.
Our Show is run by a Team of Local Voulenteers who start planning a year ahead of the show, meeting on a regular basis and come from all different backgrounds, including Agriculture, Engineering, Medical, Motor Vehicle and Entertainments industrys.
All have an intrest in keeping Winterton Agricultural Show one of the best in our region. Without these dedicated voulenteers the Show simply would not exist.
The showground is situated at the eastern end of the town with excellent access from the motorway system. It also has spectacular views down the Humber Estuary and across the Lincolnshire and Yorkshire Wolds.
