What is Destination Dorset?
This is where we will keep you up to date with events, markets, shows and news from around our beautiful county. From the Dorset County Show to the Sturminster Newton Cheese Festival, we want to help you find the best of what's on in Dorset.
For one weekend a year the market town of Sturminster Newton comes alive to the crowds of cheese and cider lovers who travel for miles to experience this fabulous food festival.

The largest one day agricultural show in the South of the UK. It takes place on the Turnpike showground outside of Shaftesbury in Dorset.

Do you run an event, show, festival or course in Dorset and want some extra exposure, then please get in touch. As our audience grows, we should be able to help you sell more tickets, fill more tents and empty more loos. Visitors come to this website for something uniquely Dorset and as a county we have some pretty good ones that may be happening online this year but they are still happening.
