3rd August to 8th August 2014
2014 is a special year for the National Steam Rally as it celebrates its 50th anniversary. Over 20,000 visitors will descend on Stradbally, Co. Laois, to celebrate with young and old alike and watch numerous steam and vintage steam engines, cars, tractors and other vintage machinery in full steam.
There will be plenty of trade stands selling products from auto jumble through to vintage fashion; with some even offering cookery demonstrations. Children of all ages can enjoy a steam train ride through the woodlands of the Cosby Estate and can revel in the carnival atmosphere.
Come along to the National Steam Rally this August to join in a very special celebration. There might even be a slice of vintage cake for you!
