About Great Dorset Steam fair

***Following a further review by the Great Dorset Steam Fair Board of Directors, it is with much regret and sadness that I have to announce that the 52nd Great Dorset Steam Fair will no longer be taking place this year and will be postponed until 2021 (Thursday 26th to Bank Holiday Monday 30th August 2021*** The Great Dorset Steam fair is one of the Country leading steam traction events but still has a significant Classic car presence. One of the highlights of The Great Dorset Steam Fair is the old time steam Funfair. Annually, over 60 Showman's Engines with their gleaming, twisted, brass appear generating the light and power for the old roundabouts and swing-boats.
