About Biddenden Tractorfest and Country Fair
Biddenden Tractorfest and Country Fair is an annual event, now entering its 8th year. Run entirely by volunteers with the support of the Kent County Agricultural Society, the aim is to stage an annual event that’s fun and affordable for the whole family.
The event is keen to support and welcome local crafts and businesses and this also helps to boost the friendly, easy-going nature of the show.
Tractorfest began in a small way in 2013 on the recreational fields in Biddenden and then transferred to Michael Palmer’s land just outside the village on the road to Sissinghurst. It grew substantially year-on-year and moved in 2018 to larger fields beside Woolpack Corner on the road to Tenterden which has remained its location to date.
While tractors 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, varied programmes in the arenas, a large array of craft and other stalls, and plenty of food and drink.
