For the past seventeen years, under the auspices of the Hamstreet and District Sports and Leisure Association, the Hamstreet Country Show has been an annual two-day event to raise funds initially for improvements to the Hamstreet Sports Field and, more recently, for the construction of the new Sports Pavilion. For 2013 a new single-day event is being arranged under the name of Hamstreet Festival of Transport, with a few different ideas and surprises. These include a Model Aircraft Display, Microlights Fly-In and Static Display, The Red Wheelies Scooter Formation Display Team, The Swinging 60s Band, Hot Air Balloon Inflation, a Fun Fair, Helicopter Pleasure Flights, a fun Dog Show, a Puppet Show, a Dutch Street Organ, Miki and Jolly Dizzy the Clown, Loose Women Morris and, of course, many Food and Craft Stalls including Goupie.
