Boconnoc Steam Fair


An old fashioned steam extravaganza held annually in the magnificent grounds of the Boconnoc Estate by the the Liskeard Steam and Vintage Club. One of the leading events of its kind in the South West, with its picturesque setting and many exhibits, people travel far and wide to pay a visit.

What happens?

With entertainment for the whole family, in the showground there are vintage vehicles from dozens of full size and miniature steam engines to motorcycles, bicycles, old tractors, sleek classic cars, stationary working engines and evocative commercial and military vehicles.

How can you take part?

Travel in old fashioned style and take a popular steam hauled trailer ride around the showground and there’s also tractor and trailer rides to the estate lake with its magnificent weeping willow centrepiece. There are parades of vintage vehicles in the main ring to watch throughout the day as well as displays of heavy haulage by steam and in the marquees you can browse around the craft stalls and take a look at the fascinating model displays. There is also a fully licensed beer tent, fun fair and trade stands.

Some of the large traction engines at the rally weigh well over 20 tons.
