The original Pickering Traction Engine Rally organised by Simon Boak since 1975

Satnav: HG5 0SE

The Pickering Traction Engine Rally, also known as the Pickering Steam Fair, is moving to a new site for 2015. After 63 years in the town, the Pickering Showground has only limited space available, so the organiser since 1975, Simon Boak, has decided now is the opportune time to move this annual event. The Pickering Traction Engine Rally is a great family weekend with Steam Engines, Fairground Organs, Vintage and Classic Cars and Motorcycles, Vintage Trucks, Working Steam, Crafts, Old Time Funfair, Childrens Entertainers, K9 Dog Show and Stage Show.

A fresh venue, an exciting and established event, lots going on, and plenty of attractions for all the family at the original Pickering Traction Engine Rally. The 'Yorkshire Steam Fair' may be a new name in the 'big steam rally scene' but key exhibitors from the relocated Pickering Traction Engine Rally will ensure this event is one of the biggest steam rallies in the north of England.

Simon Boak has created and revived many of the big outdoor events dominating the northern show calendar. Since 1975 the record is unsurpassed, over 200 large scale outdoor events and indoor exhibitions organised attracting crowds in excess of 1 million. Add to this hundreds of music promotions.
