Stithians Show is the largest one-day event of its kind in Cornwall and contains a programme similar to other agricultural shows, including competitions for the best farm animals. There is also a horticultural marquee and an arts, crafts and cookery section. During the day, the St Stythians Band plays in the entertainment area. The group is one of many traditional brass bands that are popular around Cornwall.
Stithians Show is one of many agricultural shows that take place during the summer months in Cornwall. The show itself is timed to coincide with the parish feast of St Stythians, on the first Monday after 10th July. It has been in existence for over 200 years, with the first mention of it occurring in the 1800s.
