For three decades, the residents, businesses, organisations and institutions of Kinver have come together to create an event that has been a celebration of community at its best. The heart of the village has been filled with stalls, attractions and entertainment – with the event often attracting well in excess of 10,000 visitors.
In 2011 there were some significant changes, with the fayre expanding onto the green spaces of Stag Meadow (thanks to Kinver Colts FC) and adjoining fields (thanks to Brett Davenport).
This enabled a much larger event to take place, with a full programme of arena events, a wide variety of craft and food stalls, plus attractions such as the Midlands Heavy Horse Association and a medieval camp. The parade – always a highlight of past fayres – was reinstated and brought crowds into the High Street, lined with its many shops and stalls.
Kinver Country Fayre continues in its role as a major annual event for the community, raising monies for local good causes. £4,000 was distributed as a result of the 2011 event and last year over £5,000 was donated.
