The events in Dorset should be capable of attracting crowds, large village fete size and above, similar to those listed here. Posting events on this page is free.

Our observations show that Travel Wessex's main visitors are those that love walking, cycling, horse riding and other like minded pursuits, but we welcome all attractions as we have many other visitors as well that we love to cater for.
