In the superb setting of Avington Park, the Avington Village Fete just gets better! There is food, drink, strawberries and cream, music to entertain you, and in addition this year, along with the Dog Show and the Five-A-Side-Football tournament, there is Golfer’s Corner, Beat the Goalie, Rugby Moves, Croquet and Welly Boot Throwing. You can even try your hand at writing a story or let your hair down with some Carnival Dancing. Treat yourself to nail art or have your face painted, and to reflect the theme of the Olympics, a Rio Style Carnival Hat competition. We have pony rides too, and you can see some beautiful falconry.
All of these are in addition to the usual Avington Fete Midsummer Queen Parade and the Mini Olympics. The Barrel Organ will greet you at the entrance where you will see stalls, bouncy castle and a carousel. Look out as well for our Silent Auction of Promises, new this time, and as always our raffle prizes are great (tickets now on sale).
Entrance – Adults £2.50 and children free, parking free – for the benefit of Itchen Valley Churches.
