The annual Cornwall Christmas Fair, hosted in the sparkling surroundings of the Eden Project, is back after a year's break due to the pandemic. It heralds the start of the season of goodwill in our county, featuring an abundance of gifts and home accessories, clothing and jewellery, and an array of the finest produce in the Food Hall.
Preview and shopping evening (10 November, the night before the fair), where you can enjoy a glass of wine and delicious supper alongside your pick of Christmas shopping.
Christmas fair (11 November), where you can make a head-start on your Christmas shopping, and enjoy some time in the beautiful Biomes in between your browsing.
Since its inception, the fair has raised over £750,000 to help Cornwall's cancer patients raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support. This year's event will be raising funds for Cornwall Community Foundation, as it plays a crucial role in supporting Cornwall’s struggling communities as we emerge from the pandemic.
Due to the pandemic this popular seasonal event was marked virtually last year with an online auction, raising an impressive £50,000 for 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 Cornwall Community Fund.
The organising team also give their time for free and stallholders donate 15% of all their takings to bolster the total amount raised.
This is in addition to the kind support from a number of business sponsors from across Cornwall.
