Kinver Country Fayre

Kinver Country Fayre has been running since 1936 then known as the Kinver Carnival,

Its humble beginnings with people dressing up , side stalls, and a full parade would soon see the carnival becoming a popular choice as a good day out for tourists and locals alike during the summer.

 

Over the years the Fayre went through several transformations in how it would operate through the day, from the start its parade would be led almost entirely through Kinver but as the decades pasts this would cease with the High St becoming the main focal point for the day.

In 2011 the biggest change to date would take place, With the Local Parish Council ceasing to organise the fayre it was very much in jeopardy of being lost for good until a small group of friends got together and formed a committee that would take on the role of organisers, With the new committee also came a new way manage the fayres purpose so the event would take place not just for the community and bring in extra trade but also generate funding for many many charities and local organisations that may otherwise be unable to seek funds through other means.

This would mean a complete restructure of the event to aid in maximising funding available to charities.

No longer would the High St be the central focal point for activities on the day instead moving to the playing fields where a much wider ground was available enabling the fayre to host a main attraction along with countless other forms of entertainment ensuring Kinver Country Fayre would become one of the most appreciated Country Fayres in the West Midlands and now serving as an anual  “must do event” for many
