Statement released May 2020.
Following the announcements this week outlining the need for ongoing social distancing, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Biddenden Tractorfest which was due to be held on 15th and 16th August 2020.
Our main obligation and priority is to protect the health and safety of our visitors, traders, exhibitors, volunteers, staff and all those involved in preparing and delivering the Show. With the current conditions on social distancing and possible Government restrictions on large events for the foreseeable future, it is just not possible to host a safe event for all those involved.
If you have purchased a ticket for Biddenden Tractorfest and would like a refund, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. The event is organised by volunteers living in and around Biddenden and the Kent County Agricultural Society. If you are able, please consider donating the cost of your purchase to the Kent County Agricultural Society so that we may continue our important work in supporting education and development in farming and agriculture. All stand bookings will be contacted to discuss their options.
From all of us at Biddenden Tractorfest and the Kent County Agricultural Society, take care of yourselves and we hope to see you all on 21st and 22nd August 2021.

Biddenden Tractorfest is an annual event, now entering its 8th year. New to the Kent County Agricultural Society, we will be working with a team of volunteers from all walks of life and occupations who are dedicated to making the event both fun and affordable for all the family.
The event is keen to support and welcome local crafts and businesses and this helps to boost the friendly, easy-going nature of the show.
While tractors remain central to the attracting visitors, the essence of Tractorfest is the provision of a gentle summer day out in a Countryside Fair setting with nostalgic sights and sounds. Tractor rides, numerous arena displays such as dog shows, falconry, working horses, craft stalls, children’s entertainment, enticing local artisan food & drink and fantastic live music are just some of the attractions.
