The Cork Summer Show returns this month to the Showgrounds in Curraheen with a bigger line up than previous years.

Helicopter rides, drone racing, the artisan food marquee, the Frank & Walters and Stephanie Rainey have been added to this year's line up for the festival which runs on June 15 and 16.

These are on top of the popular, traditional show staples from breeds of cattle, competitions for hunters, ponies and horses as well as sheep, goats, poultry, trade stands and machinery exhibits. 

This year's show also sees the return of the Pet Dog show sponsored by The Echo and attracts 300 dogs and their owners competing across nine categories.

Cork County Council has announced that it will continue the lead sponsorship of Cork Summer Show for the fourth year. 

"The Show is a great snapshot of all that Cork County has to offer – from great food, music, farming heritage and innovation as well as being a great attraction for visitors and tourists everywhere to Cork,” said Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr Patrick Gerard Murphy.

Free parking is available at the Showgrounds in Curraheen and a free shuttle bus service from Ballincollig Shopping Centre, Black Ash Park & Ride and Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium will be in operation also.
