The 31st Keswick Traditional Victorian Christmas Fayre takes place this year on Sunday 3rd December in Keswick town centre. There's always a tremendous festive atmosphere with around 30 decorated charity stalls, live music and superb stage and street entertainment. The stalls will sell Christmas crafts, gifts, local produce, fashion accessories etc., along with hot and cold food and drinks. It really is not to be missed, with the Christmas tree and shops displaying colourful lights, along with equally colourful local characters providing free entertainment.

There is also Santa's Grotto with Santa arriving with six Cairngorm reindeer around 12 noon and remaining in the market square until 3pm. Wearing Victorian costume is optional but encouraged.

The Keswick Traditional Christmas Fayre first began in 1988. It is organised by Keswick and Bassenthwaite Rotary Clubs, Keswick Lions Club and other local volunteers. The Fayre provides stalls for charities and local organisations to raise funds for their own good causes. None of the stalls are commercial and the Keswick Traditional Christmas Fayre is run on a non-profit making basis.
