The Village Hall Fore Street, Grampound, Cornwall TR2 4SB
In 2016 the new committee took the May Fair back to the town and back to its community roots. After two years with overwhelming positive feedback from residents, businesses, exhibitors and the wider community it will remain in the town for 2018.
Both the 2016 and 2017 event had an estimated footfall of around 4,500 throughout the whole day over Fore Street, Victoria Gardens and Longstone Park. The committee will hope to replicate these footfall numbers by once again offering a full day of non-stop entertainment.
Join us for a day of live entertainment, music, art sellers and handmade items.

Interested in crafts? Planning a wedding? Want to shop in Wadebridge town centre? Is woodland your thing?
Whatever your interest, we aim to make you very welcome here.
There’s something for every member of the family at the Royal Cornwall Show.
It’s the county’s biggest annual event and is brim-full of exhibits and activities which offer so much in the way of entertainment, competition, information, shopping and all that’s best in food and farming.
It's a time and place to meet old friends, conduct business, enjoy Cornwall in all its glory and to welcome thousands of visitors from outside our county.
This is our 224th year and our aim is to keep raising the standard. It's good for agriculture, good for tourism, good for the economy, the environment and good for the soul.
This is a top agricultural show which attracts increasing numbers of animals, entered into the hundreds of classes which are refined each year. And year on year people travel from further and further afield in the hope of coming away with an award.
Dog and goat sections; rare breed classes. A top flower show and thriving countryside area. Rabbits, cage birds, cavies - even bees get noticed here!
We support and promote Cornish-grown and Cornish-produced food both in the trade section and in our own cafes and restaurants.
Main ring entertainment is mounted on a grand scale and the traditional steam fair is a colourful extravaganza; there are stages and avenues alive with music, song and dance.
You can come to the Royal Cornwall Show with a single-minded ambition to buy a tractor or a car. Here is where you will see them all on display. Royal Cornwall Show, Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge, Cornwall PL27 7JE
