Buriton Village Show, Food and Flower Festival

Our Traditional Village Show, but this year with a twist.

A Food and Flower Festival.

Come for lunch from 12.30pm

Our traditional village horticultural show, including fruit, vegetables, flowers, baking, preserves, arts and crafts will be held on Saturday 11 August.  This is a week earlier than in recent years, to avoid a clash with the bigger event in the QE Country Park.

This year we are running the show a little earlier and incorporating a food and flower festival. Come from 12.30 to sample a wide variety of foods for both instant consumption and to take away.  Among the attractions will be:

Stars at the Village Show

A Roman Legion, Darth Vader, a Jazz Band, Fancy Dress races and information about Buriton’s wonderful Dark Night Skies were amongst the star attractions at the 2017 Village Show.

There were also other popular races, competitions and stalls on the recreation ground – as well as all the wonderful displays of fruit, vegetables, flowers, baking and other crafts in the village hall.
