Masham Sheep Fair

The Masham Sheep Fair takes place 5-6 October 2019.

Masham’s nearly as famous for its sheep as it is for its beer and this is an annual two day celebration commemorating the times when as many as 70,000 of the animals changed hand each year in its historic market square. Today the fair raises funds for local charities, schools and sports clubs and the fun things to enjoy include sheep racing, sheepdog demonstrations and a whole host of different stalls and activities.

Masham Steam Rally

The Masham Steam Engine Rally is on 20-21 July 2019.

Ever since 1965 the Masham Steam Rally has been one of the biggest events of the summer, raising funds for the upkeep of the beautiful town hall. This year it’s planned that 45 full-size steam engines and around 800 other exhibits including fairground organs, miniature engines and tractors from all over Britain will gather at Marfield on the North side of Masham for the two-day celebration.

The site is a good reference source for lots of local activities.
