Please help us spread the word and share our flyer below, we look forward to welcoming you all to our 49th annual event at Castle Fraser.

Castle Fraser

We are proud to hold our annual Steam Fair on the beautiful setting of Castle Fraser in Aberdeenshire each year. The fair is held directly adjacent to the castle which makes a stunning backdrop for our event. To enter the event you should approach the main entrance to the right of the castle.

Upon entering the event, be sure to pick up a programme (small fee applicable) and be greeted by our many craft and retail stalls as well as some classic cars. In the centre of the field you will find  our family entertainment rides, food and bar before moving on to our main arena which hosts a selection of games and parades of vehicles throughout the day. Further along, get up close and personal with our steam engines and crews before moving up to the joining field to view our vintage vehicles, tractors and displays.

And why not stop in by the castle for a look around before heading home!
