A Jewel of a Festival – Tractorfest 2018
Biddenden Tractorfest and Country Fair is now in its 6th year. It’s run solely by teams of volunteers from all walks of life and occupations and who are all dedicated to making the event both fun and affordable for the whole family. Leading the Tractorfest volunteers is Chair, Sue Boon, whose dynamism is well-known in Biddenden and surrounding areas.
As a not-for-profit event, Biddenden Tractorfest and Country Fair has been successful in raising funds for a large number of charities and other organisations – most of them local. Later this year we will be announcing the names of charities who will benefit from the event. Watch this space.
The event is also keen to support local crafts and businesses and this helps to boost the friendly, easy-going nature of the show.
Saturday and Sunday – 18/19 August – in its new, larger location at Woolpack Corner, Biddenden, saw a record number of 17,000 visitors. And the weather was kind to us all.
So while tractors, over 200 this year, remain central to attracting visitors, the essence of Tractorfest is the provision of a gentle summer day out in a Countryside Fair setting with nostalgic sights and sounds, tractor rides, numerous arena displays like dog shows, falconry, working Cob horses, craft stalls, children’s entertainment, enticing local artisan food and drink and of course, fantastic live music.
This year, for the first time, Tractorfest welcomed Richard Vobes AKA The Bald Explorer – an award winning Podcaster who was live-streaming the event on Facebook.
