Dulwich Festival Fair on Goose Green
The Dulwich Festival Fair on Goose Green is part of the wider Dulwich Festival. Started in 1993, the Dulwich Festival makes a huge variety of artistic events easily available to the whole Dulwich community and celebrates a range of local talent, both professional and amateur. Run as an independent charity by a small group of volunteers, the Festival this year runs from 12th – 21th May. Now in its 12th year the Dulwich Festival Fair will bring together a selection of the best craftspeople, designers, independent shops, family fun, bars and cafes from East Dulwich. The event is designed to be a fun, non-profit making day for all the community. There will be lots of activities for the entire family from bouncy castles and face painting for children to a beer tent (provided by East Dulwich Tavern), delicious food stalls and plenty of entertainment. Look out for Anna Jacobs' designs, described by the Evening Standard as ‘exquisite’, and now stocked in Heal’s. Her latest homewares collection is on show including lamps, cushions, limited-edition prints, greeting cards and original paintings.
