Avon Village Faire Day & Market


Each year we transform a slice of Stratford into a Medieval thoroughfare of games, stalls, food and entertainment. Our Faire Day is one of the highlights of the festival and attracts hundreds of people to our beloved Stratford upon Avon. 

This year’s theme for the Festival is Shakesfear – all about anything scary involved with Shakespeare.  In keeping with tradition of the theme, we have made a couple of changes to our Faire Day.  Instead of the usual Sunday Faire day, this year we will be having a Twilight Market on Saturday 4th May 2019 from 3pm until 8pm. Entry is free to the public.

In 2019 there will be a grand variety of traditional arts and crafts, food and beverages, fresh produce, together with exhibitions and displays.

2019 will feature:

• Children’s games on the “Village Green”
• Local stalls and demonstrations
• Street performers, exhibitions, and buskers
• Instrumental and vocal ensembles
• Maypole dancing

Our 2019 Avon Village Faire Day & Market is  a brilliant opportunity for local businesses and individuals to have their products displayed and get involved in an excellent community Festival.
