Fete Guide

Putting on a fete is like cooking a "baked dinner" - takes a long to prepare... no time to eat...and a long time to clean up....but seeing smiles on kids faces makes it all worthwhile!

Contrary to what some people believe, Fetes, Fairs and Festivals don't just "pop up like mushrooms" on the day of the event. Many months of intensive planning are required, and the overall success of the fete will depend to a very large extent upon how thorough the groundwork has been.

With effective preparation, and a bit of luck with the weather, every fete should run smoothly, proving financially rewarding for the organisers, and enjoyable for all in attendance. If you are considering convening your first Fete and have no idea where to start, or are looking for new ideas to spice up an established Fair - this Fete Guide may be of assistance. All areas are covered; from the initial Fete Committee formation, through to themes, fairground rides, advertising, entertainment and financials.

As most Fetes are school-based events, this will be the focus of the Guide, though the same basic principles apply to any Community organisation.
