The town has a charming parish church and a wonderful marketplace. Surrounding the marketplace are an assortment of local independent shops and well-known "brand" shops as well as cafes, pubs, and supermarkets. The town also has indoor and outdoor markets each week. Blandford Forum is home to one of Dorset’s breweries – Hall & Woodhouse. Drop in for a tour of the brewery, sample, or buy the famous "Badger Beer".

By far the biggest event in the area is the annual Great Dorset Steam Fair held at the end of August. The event has grown every year and now sits on a 600-acre site.

Fun for all the family with various entertainments and music to suit all ages and an old-time steam funfair.
