It paves the way for a fun-filled family day out with educational talks, plenty of food stalls and shearing demonstrations.
There is even dancing sheep. Yes, really.
A range of craft stalls will pepper the show and there are stone-walling and wood carving events planned.
Winchcombe Concert Brass Band will entertain with live music and there is a tea tent to relax with a cuppa and a slice of cake or piece of pork with an ever popular, hog roast.
Ice cream and doughnuts should appeal to your sweet tooth whilst a licensed bar will appeal if you're after a strong tipple.
Children will be able to enjoy a bouncy castle, go-karting, face painting, and a Punch and Judy show too.
All eyes will be on man's best friend too with a novelty show set to take place at the Winchcombe Senior School Field site.
You can bring along your dog and compare with others to see who has the waggiest tail or you can see how quickly your dog can leap the bales to retrieve the dummy in 'Dog Scurry' with a prize for the fastest.
Make sure you check out the wide variety of classes in the marquee too including sections for art, crafts, floral art, photography, wine, cookery, preserves, vegetables, fruit and flowers, and a wide variety of very popular junior classes.
Tickets are £3 for adults, £1 for children and £7.50 for a family of two adults and three children.
Free parking is available on site.
