For 48 years, the show has been thrilling visitors at its 600 acre Blandford Forum Showground. Over the years, the show has developed into a fantastic country fair and music festival, so it’s truly a family event, not just about steam enthusiasts.
The five day festival programme features stunt riders in the display ring, heavy horse displays, ploughing matches and a countryside arena. Around the fair, food halls, bars and country craft stalls provide entertainment and some unique bargains. The Great Dorset Steam Fair showground is around 40 minutes drive from Upton Grange holiday cottages. This year’s fair is being held over the August Bank Holiday week so if you are hoping to visit, book your self-catering holiday cottage soon.
