where-to-nextEstablished in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, the Evington Village Fete and Show has grown in size and reputation, to become one of the stand-out community events that take place in Evington each year. Attracting around 1,800 visitors from across the community, the Fete and Show prides itself on bringing people together for a day of family fun and celebration. Themed as a traditional village Fete complete with Show displays, scarecrow competition, brass band, village teas and small fairground rides, the Fete and Show provides an afternoon of entertainment for the whole family.

Our aims are:

    • To foster the community spirit of the village and encourage residents of the area to become active members of the community.
    • To educate, encourage and raise the standards in the development of traditional and modern craft skills. The show organisers will seek to reflect the wide range of skills to be found in Evington.
    • To promote the cultivation of fruits, flowers and vegetables.
  • To provide a forum for village clubs and societies to enhance their public profile and to raise funds.

Free to attend, the next Fete and Show will take place on the Village Green in Evington on Saturday 10th August 2019, between 12 noon and 5pm.
