Chipping Steam Fair 27th – 29th May 2017
Can it really nearly be May again and time for another Chipping Steam Fair?! What a year we had last year with the sun shining and everything running like clockwork, thanks to all the volunteers who spend all year preparing for our three day extravaganza. Someone compared the 2016 show to a well oiled machine…which is quite apt consider our theme. It’s well worth the hard work with all proceeds going to local good causes and the event being enjoyed by tens of thousands of visitors who come back year after year to partake in this unique experience.
So this year, 2017, will be our 19th show and because we do it every year we learn and try to improve on every aspect of the previous one…from choosing unique acts for the arena entertainment, finding interesting catering providers to improving our information website www.chippingsteamfair.com and social media presence.
For this May we’ve hundreds of exhibitors eagerly anticipating the opportunity to show off their pride and joy. We’ll have steam traction engines, vintage tractors, classic cars and motorcycles, pedal cycles, classic plant, commercial and military vehicles. Not to mention our regular attractions including live musical entertainment in the beer tent (until late Sat & Sun), the funfair, craft fair, food hall, arena entertainment, ride on children’s train, puppet shows, donkey rides, demonstrations and the ever popular digger playpen.
