Summer Fête & Craft Fair 2019

Thursday 8th August, 10.30am to 4.30pm – Sandpit Field, Swanage


The Rotary Fete & Craft Fair is a popular annual Summer attraction, kindly sponsored by our Business Partners.

It promises to be bigger and even better this year, with attractions and interest for the whole family to enjoy.

The entertainments programme features magician Kevin Burke, Karen Grant, Andrew Cannon Band and Curly the Busker. Kevin will also be teaching circus skills and looking down from high on his stilts.

The children’s games proved very popular last year and are again part of the Fete. There will also be a wide range of children’s rides for all ages.

Why not enter your dog in the Novelty Dog Show? It’s free and fun to enter and watch and who knows your dog could become a star!

There will be an excellent selection of stalls on the field and crafts in the large marquee.

You won’t go hungry! There’s an all day BBQ and delicious food and drink including a Pimms and Prosecco bar.  As far as possible, we are following the lead from Glastonbury by not using single use plastic.

Tickets for the Grand Raffle, with a first prize of £200 and a large number of other great prizes, are on now sale from any member of Swanage & Purbeck Rotary Club and we will be selling them in Swanage on Monday 5th, Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th August from 10 am to 4pm. They cost just 50p each so why not buy a few and increase your chances of winning. You will also be able to get your tickets at the Fête on the day. Winning numbers will be drawn at 4pm.

Anyone wishing to have a stall at the event should download and complete this form.

The Fete & Craft Fair not only provides a day out for all,  but raises a substantial amount of money, with the profits going to local and international good causes.

We look forward to seeing you all in August!
