The Sherborne Castle Country Fair presents a rich and fun programme of events, country activities, stands and entertainment including one of the largest Rare Breed Shows in the country. For one day each year, one of the finest settings with its spectacular grounds and lake surrounding Sherborne Castle is transformed into a fun packed Country Fair with attractions, entertainment and activities for all the family. We look forward to welcoming you to for great day out with your family.

The Fair was started by a small group of volunteers, in 1996, with the aim of raising money for local charities, especially those working with children. To date the committee, still run by volunteers, has raised £1,080,180 for local charities and support groups.
