FairFest is a free event but it costs a huge amount of time and money to put on. We can only continue to organise FairFest if you all support us by buying your food and drinks from within the festival site. Please don’t bring any food or drinks into the festival site that have been bought elsewhere - if you do you’ll be asked to leave by our on site security guards.
Although entry to the festival is completely free there will be a small charge of £3 for a child's wristband that will give them full and unlimited access to all activities in the Kids Zone for the entire day of purchase, or £5 for the whole weekend.
FairFest is held in The Walnut Tree Field in Fairford. The site is owned by the Ernest Cook Trust who very kindly allow us to put the event on every year. Please respect the site by using the bins provided for any rubbish. Please respect the people who live in houses around the festival site by leaving quietly and respecting their property and gardens.
In the last 6 years of FairFest, and with your support, we have been able to donate over £2500 to local groups and clubs; Fairford Rugby Club Youth and Seniors, Fairford Festival Trust, Fairford Primary School, Fairford Tennis Club, and Farrell School of Irish Dance have all benefited as a result of your support of FairFest.
So come help make our 7th festival even bigger and better, having a fantastic time and helping do great things for your town and community.
The Walnut Tree Field is located at the east end of Park Street and opposite Fairford Cricket Club. Please use GL7 4JJ for satnav. There is limited on street parking and a carpark at the top of the market place in Fairford, a short walk down Park Street from the festival site. There is strictly no camping on The Walnut Tree Field.
