Events in Shropshire: see what’s on during your Shropshire stay

Here is your Shropshire events page – your guide to what’s on in Shropshire. All year round our Shropshire calendar is filled with festivals, fairs, shows, exhibitions and special days out. Some events are annual Shropshire traditions; others are one-off occasions you won’t want to miss. Shropshire’s most famous recurring events include Shrewsbury Flower Show in August and Ludlow Food Festival in September – the country’s first food festival. Several events are unique to Shropshire’s rich history. Oswestry Show in August is a one day farming extravaganza and many of Shropshire’s lovely towns host their own unique events through the year. If you’re a Shropshire events organiser who would like to share details of an event through our Visit Shropshire page, this is how you do it!
