Kitale Agricultural Show 18th -24th October 2023

The A.S.K North Rift Show was held for the first time in 1956 under the chairmanship of H.T. Lloyd. It was officially opened by Governor Sir Evelyn Baring in 1957. The North Rift National Showground is located 1 km from Kitale town, along the Eldoret – Kitale highway at the Lodwar junction. It is 8 kms from the Kitale Air strip and is centrally placed between Mt. Elgon and Cherangani hills. The branch was elevated to national show status in 1999 and the name was changed from Kitale Show to North Rift National Show. The branch covers three counties namely; Trans Nzoia, West Pokot and Turkana.


Bukura Agricultural College grew from the former Bukura Institute in 1974 under the Ministry of Agriculture with the mandate of offering certificate courses in Agriculture. In 1992, the Institute’s status was upgraded from awarding certificate courses to awarding Diploma courses in Agriculture and renamed Bukura Agricultural College (BAC). Following the enactment of the Bukura Agricultural College Act, Cap.348 of 1999, BAC became a state corporation under the then Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries. The College is currently operating as a State Corporation under the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation.
