Chatsworth Country Fair: 2nd – 4th September 2011

Held in the park of Chatsworth House, home to the Dukes of Devonshire, the 2011 event, starting tomorrow, will be the 30th Country Fair. It has become one of the largest events of its type in England, and is an essential part of the Derbyshire and Midlands calendar.

The focus of the Show is the Grand Ring on the "big flat", with over 300 trade stands and crafts. Around the park are over 40 showground attractions, many with a country theme.

Some of them are mini shows in their own right. For example, the Country Fair hosts one of the largest Horse Driving meets of the year, one of the biggest hot air balloon lifts in the country after Bristol, a major sporting clay pigeon shoot, a much-loved pipe band contest (which compares in size with many local contests in Scotland), a top-class sheep dog trial, one of the best gundog team tests in England, a busy fishing area, a large fine food village, one of the most significant gatherings of Vintage Cars in the Midlands, a countryman's area, and many many more Have-A-Go sections and exhibits.

If you're there, please drop by the Fine Food Village and visit The Artisan Smokehouse for a selection of fine smoked foods from fish to beef and also a variety of ingredients including smoked olive oil, garlic and mushrooms. Womersley Fruit & Herb Vinegars will have a range of beautifully crafted fruit vinegars and jellies which can be used to give your cooking that something extra special.
