Steyning Country Fair is a great day for all the family and will be held again on 29th May 2023

The Steyning Country Fair Committee, all of whom are local volunteers, has spent the last 8 or so months organising this year’s Country Fair. The Fair of 2015 was the first event for the current committee and was a resounding success. We hope you will join us as we once again turn Steyning into an old Sussex market town, complete with livestock, country crafts, jugglers, musicians and side shows in the town centre. The High Street is closed for the day and the car park becomes a stock yard. Farmers and traders, in late 19th Century country costume, set up many colourful stalls of produce and crafts, including craft demonstrations. There will also be Music, Tea & Cakes and Exhibitions at the STEYNING CENTRE and the COUNTRY FAIR DOG SHOW on Fletcher’s Croft Field.
The High Street Car Park will again be transformed into a Farm Yard, with local farmers bringing their beloved animals for you to see and learn about. All being well we'll have cows, pigs, donkeys, sheep, goats, poultry and more. We'll also have rural demonstrations and vintage farm machinery.
At Steyning Country Fair, we know that people of all ages deserve to have some fun. Our Fair Bus Tours will bring smiles and laughter to kids and adults alike. Whether you’re looking for a fun outing, or want to try something new, our Fair has something for everyone to enjoy!
We have a great range of stalls for your enjoyment. Rural crafts play a major part at our fair and many stallholders will be performing demonstrations, selling their products or providing information.
