About the Masham Steam Engine and Fair Organ Rally
In 1965 the serene town of Masham faced a crumbling problem: their local town hall was rapidly becoming a derelict of a past age. To raise funds to restore the classic building, the first Mashan Rally was held. Every July since, the Masham Steam Engine and Fair Organ Rally has grown to become the best-attended event in the region.
The rally features exquisite examples of steam-powered equipment, vintage automobile and motorcycles, and truly classic fair and street organs that fill the event with music. In more recent years amazing arena events have been added to the schedule of the rally.
The rally regularly includes exciting motorcycle stunts, parachutists, air show events like wing walking, magicians, bands, dog and horse shows, and even camel racing. Be sure to experience the incredible heavy horse and drays displays. Arts-and-crafts and trade booths offer everything for any taste and interest.
Masham Steam Rally
While the original goal of the rally was to raise funds for the dilapidated town hall, the Masham Steam Rally organizers continue on with the spirit of charity and fundraising for local and regional community needs.

Entry to the event is £10 for adults, seniors and unaccompanied minors £8, and children with parents £2, children under 5 are free. Only 400-yards along a bridle path direct from the rally grounds is Masham for dining and other services.

Other Things To Do Around Leyburn Road
The Yorkshire region around Masham is filled with interesting and pristine examples of the nature and history of Central England. Along the River Ure, without leaving town, is the Riverside Masham Country Park. For those with an interest in ancient history, do not miss Druid’s Temple in nearby Leighton. Or have a great time becoming lost in the tunnels, chambers, and garden of The Forbidden Corner, an attraction that has inspired a children’s book. Travelers have rated the Forbidden Corner in Tupgill Park as excellent, well worth a visit.
