Shevington Fete

Fete 2020- Cancelled

Upon careful consideration, Shevington Fete committee has taken the decision to cancel this year’s Fete, held on Saturday 13th June.
Following new government measures announced earlier this week Shevington Fete committee has decided that this is now our only viable option to ensure the heath and safety of all stall holders and attendees.
We were very much looking forward to this years Fete with even bigger and better stalls, attractions & live acts. We will start work later on in the year for an even better Fete 2021.
For all enquiries, including refund information please contact Shevington Fete on shevingtonfete@outlook.com

The biggest event in the village’s calendar!

Shevington & District Community Fete takes place every summer – it has been running since 2011, and is a reincarnation of the famous Shevington Carnival of days gone by.

The fete committee work throughout the year to raise funds and organise activities including:

  • children’s rides
  • children’s entertainment
  • stalls throughout the village centre
  • community information
  • sports and races
  • food and drink stalls
  • live entertainment

The fete takes place on the recreation ground (Church Lane/Gathurst Lane) and in the surrounding buildings – Shevington Methodist Church, St Annes Parish Rooms and Shevington Youth & Community Centre.
