This Year's Fair

The Richmond May Fair is over fifty years old and is the town's biggest community event. Welcoming thousands of visitors and giving local charities the opportunity to publicise their work and raise much needed funding.  

The 2024 Richmond May Fair will be held on Saturday 11th May and will be officially opened by the Mayor of Richmond upon Thames at 11.00am. We want to make it a great day for the whole community, an opportunity for local charities to publicise their work and raise much needed funds. In addition, many local small businesses attend the Fair to advertise and sell their products and crafts.  All the favourites from past years will be there; the Victorian Fun Fair, delicious food, plenty of cakes, yummy treats and of course the popular Dog Show.  Local bands, schools and various performance groups will stage a great line up of entertainment throughout the day.


For the first time, Stallholders will be able to apply, book and pay for their stall online.  


We are very grateful that once again we have the generous support of our main sponsor Be Richmond
