Welcome to the official website of the Dunster Country Fair, West Somerset’s biggest Country Fair offering fun and entertainment for the whole family!


In addition to the main ring attractions which has a busy schedule throughout the day, the Village Green also has lots of demonstrations and interactive displays, there’s a large number of Trade Stands, the wonderful Craft Tent plus plenty of food and liquid refreshment on offer, with a luncheon in the marquee always proving very popular!


Dunster Country Fair is held in the picturesque setting of Dunster Castle Lawns by kind permission of Mr J A. F. Luttrell, Mr A. H. F. Luttrell and The Dunster Estate. This year the fair will be celebrating 43 years from the early beginnings, as a Donkey Derby held in West Somerset. The Dunster Country Fair has grown to become one of West Somerset’s premier attractions - it’s a fun day out for all the family!
