The Culpeper Madison Rappahannock Farm Show takes place every year in mid July.

This farm show is a family-friendly celebration of livestock, food, and agriculture.


The CMR Farm Show is held at Culpeper Agricultural Enterprises, located on the James Monroe HIghway in Culpeper, Virginia.

Culpeper is located in the central region of Virginia near the Blue Ridge mountains.

Culpeper county is near to hiking, biking, and canoeing. Skyline Drive is located within easy driving distance.

The historic downtown area of Culpeper is bustling with boutique shops, restaurants, and charming inns.

Farm Show Attractions

The CMR Farm Show is fun for the whole family.

Livestock are brought in from all three counties. Children will enjoy seeing sheep, cows, pigs, and goats. Small animals, such as rabbits and chickens, will also be on display.

A small petting zoo will be set up for children to touch the animals.

Livestock experts will be on hand to provide educational information about raising and taking care of animals.

Many of the livestock brought to the show are raised by 4-H/FFA members. For months prior to the show, 4-H youth feed, milk, and care for the animals.

During the show, the animals are judged according to different categories. Prizes go out to the goat that will yield the most milk, the beefiest cow, and the sheep with the finest wool.

On the last day of the CMR Farm Show, the cows, pigs, chickens, and many other animals are sold.

The CMR Farm Show is free and open to the public.

Home and Garden Competitions

In addition to the livestock competitions, Culpeper, Madison, and Rappahannock County residents vie for other titles, such as the Tastiest Apple Pie and the Most Competent Tractor Driver.

A Little Miss and Little Mr. CMR Farm Show Contest is also held during this event. Children 8 years old and under are asked to come dressed to do farm chores.

Registration for the Little Mr. and Miss CMR Farm Show Contest is $5 per child.

After spending a few minutes or a few hours looking at the wide variety of livestock offered at the CMR Farm show, visitors can refresh themselves with some delicious food from one of the many vendors at the show.
