In the historic setting of Exeter’s Cathedral Green, this very special event is run entirely by a team of volunteers. This celebration of art, craft and entertainment has been an annual event for over 40 years. Over 100 stalls in a unique tented village showcase the work of the West Country’s best artists and makers.

The lively, friendly atmosphere creates the perfect way to browse and talk to the makers of a diversity of work: ceramics, textiles, metalwork, jewellery and so much more. There will also be an opportunity to see work being created.

Free entertainment for all tastes abounds with face painting, vocalists, dancers and even a strolling jazz band.

There is a great choice of refreshments too with vendors dotted around the site.
A great day out, for all the family.
