The history of the Annual Show is one steeped in history, tradition and inspiration. The very first Show was held in Belfast Corporation Markets on the banks of the River Lagan on the 23rd and 24th August 1855.
Outgrowing this venue, from 1896 to 2012 the Annual Show was held at the 32-acre Balmoral site in Belfast and was renamed to Balmoral Show.
In 2012, again outgrowing the Balmoral and King's Hall venue, the decision was made to purchase and develop a new venue, the 65-acre Balmoral Park. In 2013, the Balmoral Show opened to fantastic acclaim and the 120,000 attendance is 2019 was the largest in history.
