Here at the Pavilion Gardens, we’re very proud to host a diverse range of events and fairs for all the family to enjoy. Each year we host over 100 fairs and events and this number is continually growing! Whether you’re looking for delicious local produce, antique furniture, original artwork, books, toys, crafts or some new clothes, you’re bound to find them, and much more at our events and fairs. 

Among our regular events we have: Artist and Designer fairs, Farmers Markets, Jewellery and Craft fairs, Toy fairs, Book fairs, Saturday Bazaars, Afternoon Dances and more. In addition to these fantastic fairs, we also host a range of seasonal events that are full of family fun. Our seasonal events consist of an eclectic mix of popular stalls, live music, children’s rides and entertainment alongside season specific activities.

If you work up an appetite whilst visiting us at one of our events, be sure to visit our Coffee Bar or Pavilion Café for some delicious food and drink prepared by our friendly staff.
