The Elvaston Steam Rally is held each July at Elvaston Castle Country Park in Derbyshire, England. The gathering is organised by the Elvaston Castle Steam Rally Committee, as a fund raiser for local charities in the Derby area. The Event has been hosted for the last few years by Derbyshire County council, at Elvaston Castle Country Park, in the grounds of Castle on the edge of Derby.
