Petersfield Eco Fair

Petersfield’s biennial Eco Fair is back on Sunday 14th July at Petersfield Heath!

It will be a celebration of ‘earth-friendly’ living with family activities including crafts, storytelling and face-painting, as well as live music, delicious food and drinks, sustainable products and fascinating stalls. Everyone is invited to this free event, organised by PeCAN and Petersfield Town Council.

Take the whole family to the lovely setting of Petersfield Heath and find out how, in a few simple steps, you can save money and help the planet. Get valuable advice on home energy, and handy tips about upcycling. Benefit from practical nature-friendly gardening guidance, to bring wildlife back to our gardens and increase biodiversity for our children and grandchildren. Talk to owners of electric cars and bicycles. Meet community groups to find out what’s happening locally, and purchase planet-friendly goodies from local makers.  Our full stallholder list is available here.

There will be something to interest and entertain everyone. Visitors are encouraged avoid waste by bringing reusable cups and bottles for drinks. The event will be run using batteries charged by renewable energy and bike racks will be available. Everyone is welcome - and if you can walk, cycle or use public transport to get there that’s even better!
