Cornwall Christmas Fair

Cornwall Christmas Fair

Cornwall's most vibrant Christmas fair returned to Eden on 22 and 23 November 2023, raising funds for Cornwall Community Foundation. Thank you to everyone who joined us.

We will be opening our doors for free on Thursday 23 November 2023. All visitors will need to book a free timed entry ticket to visit.

Please note, an additional ticket is required to attend the Fair – this can only be booked and purchased in advance from the Cornwall Christmas Fair website. 

Christmas shopping

Complete with up to 70 independent stalls from within Cornwall and beyond, the annual Cornwall Christmas Fair, hosted in the sparkling surroundings of the Eden Project, heralds the start of the season of goodwill in our county.

The fair features an abundance of gifts and home accessories, clothing and jewellery, and an array of the finest produce in the Food Hall. It's perfect for picking up Christmas treats, stocking fillers and local gifts. 

Each year we run a:

  • Preview and shopping evening (22 November, the night before the fair), where you can enjoy wine and delicious supper alongside your pick of Christmas shopping
    Time: 5pm-9pm
    Tickets: pre-booking in advance is now available via the Cornwall Christmas Fair Eventbrite page – there will be no tickets available on the door
  • Christmas Fair (23 November), where you can make a head-start on your Christmas shopping, and enjoy some time in the beautiful Biomes in between your browsing. Please note, the Fair takes place in the Link Building.
    Time: 10am-4pm
    Tickets: pre-booking in advance is now available via the Cornwall Christmas Fair Eventbrite page – there will be no tickets available on the door

Raising money

Since its inception, the fair has raised over £853,500 for Cornwall’s charities. This year's event will be raising funds for Cornwall Community Foundation, as it plays a crucial role in supporting vulnerable Cornish communities.  

Organised by a team of volunteers, the Fair is the ultimate Cornish Christmas shopping experience, with all proceeds (including a percentage of profits from stallholders) going to support Cornwall’s struggling communities through the Cornwall Community Foundation.

We open our doors to all fair-goers for free on the day, and all funds collected from tickets will go straight to the Cornwall Community Foundation.

This is in addition to the kind support from a number of business sponsors from across Cornwall.

In 2021 the Fair raised £73,000 – the most in its 30-year history.
