Full steam ahead as rally rolls into town

Two days of nostalgia and family fun will take place at Driffield Showground this weekend as the Driffield Steam Fair rolls into town.

Taking place across Saturday and Sunday (12th and 13th August) in Kelleythorpe, the steam fair, which is being organised by Custom Shows, will see hundreds of steam, vintage and classic vehicles.

From traction engines and steamrollers to classic cars, tractors, vintage motorbikes and agricultural machinery, there will be something for all lovers of vehicles from a bygone era.

There also promises to be entertainment for young and old, with arena displays, traditional fairground rides, trade stands, children’s activities, food and drink and a live DJ.

Driffield Steam Fair and Road Run 2022

For many, the highlight of the weekend is the popular Saturday evening road run through Driffield town centre, where thousands of people congregate on both sides of the road to watch the vehicles wind their way from the Showground.

The parade is set to arrive in town at around 6pm with road closures in the town centre between 5:45pm and 8:30pm

During the road run, a bucket collection takes place, with a different charity chosen every year.

This time around, the Driffield Trip Day fund has been named as the beneficiary of the collection and committee members will be wearing special t-shirts as they walk around with orange buckets and collection tins.

The procession is scheduled to reach the town centre at approximately 6pm on Saturday evening, leading to the closure of several roads in the town from 5:45pm to 8:30pm

Some of the collectors will be walking alongside the parade of vintage vehicles, whilst others will be positioned at various points along the route.

The Driffield Steam Fair will be open between 10am and 6pm on the Saturday and 10am and 5pm on the Sunday.
