The Exeter Family Festival and Market will be held at the Exeter Showgrounds on Sunday 29 October. The event is being organised by the West Tamar Lions Club to raise funds towards the installation of an all access playground in the West Tamar area. It’s a chance for the community to get involved in the project and enjoy a great day of fun and entertainment.

The Exeter Family Festival and Market will run from 9:00am until 4:00pm, and aims to showcase local groups and organisations while providing a day rich in entertainment, information and fun.

This will be the second time the West Tamar Lions Club has hosted the festival. Last year, the event boasted more than 250 stalls and 100 entertainment organisations. In excess of 5,000 patrons passed through the gate.

Feedback from last year indicated all attendees had an enjoyable time. Groups relished the community interest and support the festival provided.

The event is free to the public and while many activities at the event will also be free, a gold coin donation towards fundraising for the all access playground would be greatly appreciated. The West Tamar Lions Club is a not for profit organisation, so all funds raised will go towards the playground.
