Raveningham Country Fair

Saturday 31 August 2019

 you can see some more photos in our Gallery.

Steam Engines, Classic Vehicles

and Vintage Machinery

We usually have  over 150 exhibits including working displays of threshing, wood sawing and chaff cutting - all by steam, full size and miniature steam engines, stationary barn engines, vintage tractors and classic cars, which attract many enthusiasts from all over East Anglia, both as exhibitors and as spectators. 

Enjoy the sight and smells of yesterday! See a video of threshing made at the Fair and another of the impressive array of Stationary Engines. For photos of the past Fairs   visit our Gallery.

Entry for exhibitors is free but we ask you to pre-register and an application form can be downloaded by clicking HERE.

 

We have a truly awe-inspiring line up of cars and bikes to look around and more importantly hear! Plus the owners are a really great bunch of characters who'll be happy to talk for hours about their pride and joy.

Exhibitors come from organisations including East Coast Pirates American Car Club, Lowestoft Classic Vehicle Club, Norwich Classic Vehicle Club, Waveney & District Preservation Society and East Anglia Transport Museum but we also welcome individual vehicle-owners.

Acts change each year but we usually have 3 on the programme. For latest information see our Facebook page.
