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.
