Biddeneden Tractorfest and County Fair
Woolpack Corner, Tenterden Rd, Biddenden, Ashford TN27 8BH
Biddenden Tractorfest and Country Fair 2019 is an annual event now entering its 7th year. It’s run solely by teams of volunteers from all walks of life and occupations and who are all dedicated to making the event both fun and affordable for the whole family. Leading the Tractorfest volunteers is Chair, Sue Boon, whose dynamism is well-known in Biddenden and surrounding areas.
As a not-for-profit event all proceeds are donated to local Clubs, Associations, Societies, Groups, Amenities and Registered Charities.
The event is also keen to support and welcome local crafts and businesses and this helps to boost the friendly, easy-going nature of the show.
Saturday and Sunday – 18/19 August – in its new, larger location at Woolpack Corner, Biddenden, saw a record number of 17,000 visitors. And the weather was kind to us all.
So while tractors (over 200 in 2018), remain central to attracting visitors, the essence of Tractorfest is the provision of a gentle summer day out in a Countryside Fair setting with nostalgic sights and sounds. Tractor rides, numerous arena displays like dog shows, falconry, working Cob horses, craft stalls, children’s entertainment, enticing local artisan food and drink and of course, fantastic live music are just some of the attractions.
