Fair Mo - St Ives - Christmas Fair

Fair Mo - St Ives Cornwall


Fair Mo - St Ives' traditional Christmas Fair -is on Saturday 26th November from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.

It has a history going back to 1490 - when it started as a Pig Fair granted by Royal Charter.

This year the organisers are planning a bigger and better event than ever - to be held at St Ives Parish Church (rather than The Guildhall as in previous years).

Stalls will include:
  • Fresh local produce.
  • Paintings.
  • Other works of art.
  • Crafts.
  • Antiques.
  • Christmas gifts.
In keeping with the age old tradition as a pig fair, it will also include a scrumptious pig roast, pigs and other animals on the church green. All will be complemented by stalls selling tasty refreshments.

Chefs from Tregenna Castle will be doing a cooking demonstration and food tasting.

Inside the church will be Santa's grotto, singing and Advent carols.
