Events in Dorset are many and varied, plenty to suit all interests. There are so many more these days that it has been found that most months need a page of their own!!!

So please browse them all. Get out your diary and plan your year. Perhaps organise short breaks to make the most of the events you would love to attend.

Some events do not yet have their dates for this year yet. As soon as they are to hand we will put that right. For now the event will be listed in the month it is normally held.

Did you know that National Express Coaches take you straight to some Festivals?

Dorset, the county of the Jurassic Coast, Bournemouth and Weymouth.   The county of Thomas Hardy, the Great Dorset Steam Fair and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch make a delightful trio of towns along the south coast of Dorset. Weymouth and Portland are the start or finish of the Jurassic Coast. Dorchester is the capital of the county - Thomas Hardy is its favourite son.  Maiden Castle is  not far away. Sherborne, with its Abbey is a lovely spot. Dorset is a county of beautiful farmland and small lanes that just say come and look. What about visiting the Great Dorset Steam Fair at Tarrant Hinton for something different and interesting.

Anyone with events in Dorset who would like to list their event here please contact us via the Feedback form, we would love to hear from you. The event should have its own website so that our visitors can find you and obtain more information.

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.

We reserve the right not to include events in Dorset that are not suitable for legal or other reasons.

Why not travel by Coach

If you do decide the leave the car at home and help the environment too, why not go National Express. They run coaches all over the country. Some pretty good fares too.

Just imagine - sit back and relax, no hassling with the traffic!!!

Do you know that you can book on your mobile phone and they will send the ticket as a text!!!!
