HDAF Allotment Show

The annual Harrogate & District Allotment Show takes place in the Sun Pavilion in Valley Gardens.  It 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 lots of 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.

Lots of stalls - plants, produce, cakes, books, tombola,- and a prize raffle.  Local charities, clubs and environmental groups all support the show and there is entertainment in the afternoon from a local big band.

This is a charity event, raising money for a local group with an interest in gardening.  £750 from our 2019 Show went to Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre. 


The 2020 Show has been 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.

Harlow Hill runs the tombola stall, so we will be looking for tombola prizes and volunteers to man the stall.
