Steam & Vintage Rally
Driffield’s Steam & Vintage Rally is held annually in August at the Showground, and is a two-day event attracting several thousand visitors from across the region.
Organised by the East Riding Engine Club, the stars of the show are the vintage steam-powered traction engines, but there are also vintage and classic cars, vans, motorcycles, and tractors as well as smaller stationary steam engines, models, steam-powered fairground rides and a steam organ.
The highlight of the weekend is the famous road-run through the town on the Saturday evening, where the steam and vintage vehicles all form a thundering convoy and travel in procession past the waiting crowds in the town. The evening is rounded off by a firework display.
