Our Annual Allotment Show, held in August in the Sun Pavilion, The Valley Gardens, Harrogate, provides an opportunity for plot holders and associate members from across the Harrogate District to exhibit their prize crops, flowers etc. and to get together to discuss their successes. There are many different classes to enter – fruit & vegetables, flowers, baking, as well as classes for novices, children and the whole family. You don’t have to be an expert – give it a try. Trophies and cash prizes to be won. Volunteers are always needed to help set up, man the stalls and to help with clearing away.
There are lots of stalls – our HDAF stalls include plants, produce, cakes, books, tombola and a prize raffle -plus stalls run by local charities, clubs, craftspeople and environmental groups. A big band keeps everyone entertained in the afternoon.
This is a charity event, with profits donated to a local group with an interest in gardening. £750 from our 2019 Show went to Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre.
The 2020 Show was cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis.
The 2021 Show will be our Diamond Jubilee on Sunday 15th August and the 2021 charity is Ripon Museums Trust.
