West of England Steam Rally, Truro

Truro’s West of England Steam Rally is taking place on August 17 – 19 and brings together nearly one hundred full size and miniature steam engines from all over the UK to this long standing steam event.

The West of England Steam Rally is held at the Stithians Show Ground, just outside Truro. The event sees a plethora of stunning showmen’s engines with their gleaming highly polished brass on the steam road rollers, heavy haulage road locomotives, ploughing engines and agricultural traction engines.

There will undoubtedly be something for everyone during the three day show, with a range of family trade stands, heavy horses, vintage cars, tractors, commercial vehicles, military vehicles, motorcycles, stationary engines and a model and craft marquee all on offer.

There will be a range of displays during the festival, showing how farm work was carried out in days gone by; these include demonstrations of wood sawing and threshing driven by steam powered engines. Tickets start from £5 with family tickets available, for more information contact 07729 816888.

Why not add this fantastic event to your itinerary while you stay in Cornwall cottages for your summer holidays.
