Part of the magic of Chatsworth Country Fair must be the unique diversity of different exhibitions, competitions and activities around the showground. Where else could you experience a Balloon lift, Sheep Dog Trials and Military Vehicles all in the same place? Stroll down a piece of our rural heritage in Countryman's Walk with Derbyshire Dry Stone Walling Association, Wattle hurdle making, stickmaking, spinning, basket making and more. The exhibitors are always happy to talk about their craft and demonstrate skills often dating back hundreds of years. Chatsworth Country Fair is also an important venue for a number of county and club competitions including Horse Driving, the Gun Dog Team Test, Dog Agility and Solo Pipers.

If conditions are right it's worth waiting for the hot air balloon lift, after Bristol this is one of the largest balloon events in the country and the site of around 40 balloons all rising into the air is truly spectacular.
