Elsenham Village Fete

The fete is run by people from the village for the village, if we have any budding fundraisers who would like to try and sell some of their gifts or have games for people to have a go at why not come along.

The Fete

We cannot guarantee the weather but good company and lots of people make the day worthwhile.


This year's fete is on Saturday June 9th 2018.   1 - 4pm.   Click here for a print version of the Fete Booking Form 2018

Elsenham Fete Committee had three major aims……

For Folk to leave thinking …….That was friendly.

                                                      Value for money

                                                      I love living here!

Due to warmth, commitment and hard work of those helping to make the fete happen, we believe we achieved that in 2017………Aided by those who attended with open hearts and a  desire to enjoy.

We were blessed with the weather, the atmosphere was buzzing, and folk were smiling.

Thank you for affirming what we believe ………… It's great living here……


Even though the 2018 fete is a long way off we are already busy ensuring that we all have a brilliant time, as we did last year. 

Our intention is to once more have lots of local attractions and stalls, with the emphasis on them being as ‘local’ as possible. 

Whether you have been involved before or not and would like to join us this year then please let me know by phone or mail. We would love to hear what you have to say about the fete and if you would like to get involved in any capacity. As I said before, if you can’t commit the time, but would still like to be involved, that would also be just fine – we would love to hear from you. 

Our dream is to have as many of village institutions involved as possible and if you believe that would be a struggle for your organisation, please let us know and we will help in any way we can. 

We once more intend to have a classic car section, so if you have such a thing, please can you let us know. It doesn’t necessarily have to be classic, if it is unusual, quirky or interesting then please get in touch. 

Whatever you would like to see, whatever you don’t want to see, any ideas, dreams, intentions, hopes or anything, if you have something to say about the fete, then we want to know.....this fete belongs to us all! We can only deliver the fete you want if you tell us what you want!
