2 - 4 September 2016
For a true taste of the very best the countryside has to offer, there's nowhere quite like the annual country fair here at Chatsworth. Come and sample some superb local produce, find some exquisite crafts and spend a weekend enjoying a whole host of family activities, displays and performances.
The Country Fair is one of England's most spectacular annual outdoor events. Held in Chatsworth Park, it attracts large crowds from all over the country. Massed pipe and military bands, demonstrations and parades, hot air balloons, parachuting and over 300 varied trade stands and rural crafts make this a memorable event with something for everyone.
An exciting Grand Ring programme takes place over the weekend, with displays ranging from a vintage car parade to the hot air balloon races and terrier racing. A sporting clay pigeon shoot takes place and the bouncy castle and old time fairground are always popular with children.
Many of England's heritage of country sports and pastimes are on show including Armed service displays, horse shoeing, Ferret racing, archery and sheep dog trials.
