A steam fair is a regular organised gathering of steam-powered vehicles and machinery. Typical exhibits include: traction engines, steam rollers, steam wagons, steam cars and portable engines. This is a geographic list of these gatherings, some of which are referred to as rallies or as festivals. The list does not include static steam museums unless they host a particular event that falls into the classification.
In addition there are some travelling shows powered by steam. Where these are referred to as steam fairs they are included in the list.
