Held once again in York’s beautiful Avon Park, this year’s event is set to be the best one yet, with something for the whole family to enjoy. Hosted by the York Friendship Club, part of the fayre’s proceeds go towards helping Perth’s homeless.

Wander through the diverse array of market stalls, where medieval-style clothing and wares will be available to purchase. Trace your heraldic origins, learn about Richard 3rd and see how olde-world crafts are created. Younger children will have their own special area with entertainment by ‘Pirateman’.
Take a camel ride or watch the horse archery over near the carriage diner. There will be a great range of food stalls catering to all tastes. he parade through town is at 2pm in honour of the Fayre’s King and Queen, who will be chosen at the Banquet hosted by Settler’s House on Saturday night 23 September.
