Oak Fair

OAK FAIR 2024

Saturday & Sunday 24th & 25th August.

Much like an acorn, from humble beginnings 18 years ago, our little Oak Fair celebrating oak, timber, woodland, conservation and the Dorset countryside has grown into something much bigger, while our ethos remains just the same as it did in our first year. We now welcome over 200 exhibitors to our show and have an action packed arena with some amazing shows and demonstrations.

One of our favorites, totally for the people, not full of high priced machinery on display. Just lots of crafts, mostly wood related and plenty to eat and drink.
