Vintage and Rural Events

We do love a good day out! And there are so many gorgeous places to visit in Dorset and events that are perfect for lovers of old fashioned tradition, classic cars, home-crafts, historic and countryside activities.

If you are thinking about having a day out locally and want something to fit in with a traditional theme then check out the Vintage Dorset Events Calendar. Its a selection of hand-picked favourites that might be particularly suitable for lovers of vintage.

We haven’t included all of the Jubilee Events this Year which are going to be fabulous (check out our article in Dorset Magazine this month) and ¬†we also leave out the country house and garden events – as there are hundreds all over the place – but hopefully you’ll notice something that takes your fancy!

Bottles of ginger beer and famous five novels for Vintage events in DorsetEnid-Blyton-TrailOne of our favourites new for this year is the launch of a new Famous Five Treasure Trail from The Ginger Pop Shop at Corfe Castle. From the 7th June this year you can re-trace the Dorset locations Enid Blyton used for her Famous Five books and follow a mystery yourself! We know its for adults really but the kids will insist on tagging along! Find out more HERE The Ginger Pop Famous Five Treasure Trail .

And towards the end of the summer – of course the Great Dorset Steam Fair is an all time winner! (But lots to squeeze in before then!) Send your vintage event to info@vintagedorset.co.uk if you want us to include it in the calendar.
