Great Dorset Steam Fair
Held at the beginning of September on a 500 acre site at Tarrant Hinton, 3km east of Blandford Forum, the Great Dorset Steam Fair is the largest collection of steam and vintage equipment in the country.
With 200 working steam and traction engines, 100 fairground organs and around 2000 other working exhibits the aim of the show is to give the public an insight into what the English way of life looked like in the country around the 1900's, when steam power was in its heyday.
