The Annual East Riding Country Fair is held every May Day Bank Holiday Weekend at the Driffield Showground where they welcome thousands of people from across East Yorkshire and beyond for a great value family fun weekend! The East Riding Country Fair has great value at its heart which is why entry for under 16s is FREE, making this an affordable weekend away for all ages.

In 2019 there will once again be several activities within our “Outdoor Pursuits Zone” that are completely FREE OF CHARGE for visitors once they have arrived. These include the, Inflatable Assault Course, Inflatable Jungle Run, Segways, Climbing Wall, Action Wheels Bike Course, Miniature Tanks, Donkey Rides, WWII Living History and the Wonky Olympics!
CARAVAN AND CAMPING
Caravan and Camping is priced at £25.00 per pitch for the entire weekend, shower and toilet facilities are available but there is no electric hook up. Entry tickets for the East Riding Country Fair sold separately.
2019 will also see the introduction of a brand new ‘Wildlife Zone’ to the event. The Wildlife Zone will be centred around the Rix Pavilion Event Centre with both inside and outside activities and stands planned to create an educational and fun area for children and families to get involved with some free interactive and ‘hands on’ opportunities, including making bird feeders and bug hotels!
This area will also include birds of prey, a hands-on experience with mini beasts, giant tortoises and alpacas and to further compliment this zone we are also working closely with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, the RSPB, the East Yorkshire Bat Group and the National Trust to lay on further interactive, educational activities for children and families to take part in across the Weekend.
If that all of this sounds like too much excitement, then why not take a look at over 100 Stalls or grab something to eat from one of the onsite caterers and pull up a chair for a well-deserved rest.
