Later in the year, the seasonal Pershore Plum Fayre, Evesham Vintage Steam Rally and Worcester Christmas Fayre all draw large crowds.

Many of the biggest festivals in Worcestershire take place at the Malvern Showground, which is roughly 20 minutes away from the city and each year plays host to huge events such as Countrytastic and the Malvern Spring Gardening Show. In June, Malvern sees the arrival of the Three Counties Show, which remains the region's premier agricultural and countryside event, and includes plenty of live entertainment at its Main Arena venue.
