Border Cars has been confirmed as the headline sponsor for the Galloway Country Fair for the fourth year running.

The annual family countryside event, taking place on 19th and 20th August at Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate, has secured the new and used car dealership – which operates throughout Cumbria, Dumfries & Galloway and Ayrshire – as the lead sponsor.

This year’s Galloway Country Fair, which takes place at Drumlanrig Castle and Country Estate each year, is set to be a superb weekend packed with activities and entertainment for the entire family.

The main arena will welcome Atkinson Action Horses, amazing stunt horses that have appeared on a number of popular TV hits including Victoria and Poldark, as well as the Dog and Duck show, terrier racing and the Buccleuch Gundogs.

Visitors can try their hand at a variety of activities including the 4×4 track which is also sponsored by Border Cars. A free children’s activity zone, sponsored by construction firm Reigart, is sure to keep children entertained throughout the weekend.
