Totnes celebrates a host of family fun with a glorious Summer Fair

Totnes local communities and visitors alike are set to be thoroughly spoiled this August 23rd when Totnes Town Council and Miss Ivy Events once again pull out all the stops to create a free family-friendly day of celebration in the town centre.

The event is billed as a great day out for everyone. Visitors can expect a host of free fun including crafting pompom bees, facepainting, a magician, and puppet shows.  There are even some vintage fairground rides to keep the little ones amused. Visitors should note that unless you have a free token, there is a small charge for the rides.      

Meanwhile, Market Square and Civic Hall are the focal points for entertainment, shopping, street food and live music. The organisers have amassed a collective of local giftware and artisan crafters too, whilst on the Square, there’s a fabulous choice of delicious street food.

As Jo Macaskie of Miss Ivy Events said “we want visitors to be able to kick back, hopefully in the sunshine, make some great memories, snack on delicious food, listen to superb live music and generally have a chilled out time”.

Cllr Emily Price, Mayor of Totnes went on to say “I’m so pleased that Totnes Town Council is bringing all the fun of a summer fair to Totnes this Summer Holiday. We know keeping the kids entertained in the holidays isn’t cheap, so it’s a real pleasure to be able to reassure parents and carers that we’ll have lots of free fun on offer for all the family, including crafting pompom bees, enjoying the puppet shows and being entertained by live music from some of our best young local talent.  To help local families who live in Totnes have the best day out, we’re also offering 200 free rides on the fairground rides which are operating at a small charge per ride.  Suitable for children aged 2-10 years old, simply take proof that you live in TQ9 5– to our Tourist Information Centre in the Market Square from 10am on 23 August to claim your free ride token – and have even more fun for free. Come along to enjoy a great day out at the fair in the heart of Totnes.”

The day gets underway at 11:00 with live music performances scheduled throughout the day until 17:00 when festivities draw to a close.
