August 25, 2017 - August 28, 2017

Bursting with surprises, the 43rd Isle of Wight Steam Show is an action-packed show and great family day out!
There’s bundles of fun in the main arena with stunning shows which will make you gasp, cheer and laugh, while in our ‘Comedy & Entertainment’ arena Mr. Alexander’s Travelling Show returns to enthrall and amuse, plus there’s humorous tales, comedy and oddball skills with Greg Chapman’s Condensed Histories. And there’s a terrific line-up of live bands and music to enjoy each day on the Woodland Stage.
Around the Show, climb aboard the traditional fairground rides, marvel at the fascinating working steam demonstrations, relish the sight of beautifully maintained traction engines, vintage cars, motorcycles and old wagons, or simply settle back for a steam train ride through the Island’s unspoilt countryside. To complete your day out, meet the Blackfoot Lodge in their Red Indian encampment, browse around the fascinating stalls, pick up a bargain from the country crafts, cool down with an ice cream or a glass of your favourite tipple from our Real Ale bar, and enjoy a good variety of refreshments.
The Island Steam Show will make your August Bank Holiday a weekend to remember!
