The Agricultural Exhibition at Hella 2008 will take place 22nd to 24th August. This year’s show will be a celebration of the hundredth anniversary of the South Iceland Farmers Association. It is hoped it will be one of the largest agricultural shows in Iceland for many years.
The agricultural show in South Iceland is not just for farmers; it is just as much a family event, with exciting activities and interesting exhibits each day.
Aiming to introduce and update as many people as possible to the realities of modern Icelandic farming, organisers believe making the Hella event into a tourist attraction is both good for visitors and also good for spreading a positive image for farmers and their products.
Details of the Agricultural Exhibition at Hella 2008 can be found on the new South Iceland travel website, south. is.
The Icelandic travel website , South.is aims to be a complete source of information for visitors to South Iceland, including details on accommodation, tours and activities, museums and galleries, as well as big events like the Agricultural Exhibition.
Visitors to the Agricultural Exhibition at Hella 2008 will be able to learn interactively about diverse areas including agricultural machinery, plant protection and fertilisers, livestock care and breeding, fruit growing, hunting, forestry and the Icelandic horse.
In fact, there will be opportunity to interact with the horses and see them compete in a mini horse show and competition. The Agricultural Exhibition takes place at the same showground as the world-famous Landsmot Icelandic horse festival.
South.is, the website for the travel industry in South Iceland , describes the beautiful region as a place where: “Everything that makes Iceland interesting to visit can be found the year around. Here history follows you at every footstep, both ancient and recent. There is creative art, culture and flourishing trade and endless possibilities to enjoy the outdoor life in all seasons”.
