Bloemfontein Show
Bloemfontein Show

Bloemfontein and the Bloem show annually hosts the largest agricultural and entertainment show in South Africa and is one of the three largest shows in South Africa. Bloem Show is a combination show and we believe this to be the success of our survival. On one side we have the commerce and industry section with approximately 450 exhibitions, 25 foodstalls, exciting amusement park and probably one of the best entertainment programmes of all shows. It is this section, together with the income generated from entrance fees, which is the financial injection and ensures that expenses can be paid, as well as maintenance of the facilities can be kept.

The second part of the show is the agricultural, cultural and service side. At present, Bloem Show presents the largest open air Saddle Horse Championship in the world with ±1000 saddle horses taking part in the national championship, as well as national championships for Arab Horses and Welsh Ponies, provincial Tentpegging championships and championships for Miniature Horses.

Exhibitors are a diversion of all races and cultures and do not only include SA citizens, but also exhibitors from Namibia, Swaziland, Egypt, Pakistan, Australia and Kashmir.

The Art and Home Industry section includes entries of handmade products such as porcelain dolls, embroidery, art, flowers etc. and all participants.

With a multitude of events taking place, approximately 160 000 visitors were drawn to the show from all over South Africa as well as various parts of the world.

Our intention is, that through involving the entire community, we are able to invite harmony and enjoyment for family and friends – an opportunity to relax and enjoy yourself!
