About

2017 is our year off – please check back towards the end of 2017

Holifair Festival is an annual family-friendly, community-building fundraising celebration with over 30 live bands, talks, cabaret, barn dance, kids area with loads of great workshops, dance tent, chillout space, walkabout acts, firepit, theatre, storytelling, bar, craft and wellbeing area, plus local caterers and stalls set on the beautiful Holifield Farm Project in Gweek, at the head of the Helford Estuary. It attracts up to 3000 people.

2016 will be Holifair’s 9th year and it gets more popular every year. Holifair is a community fundraising event for the The Holifield Farm Project Day Care Centre for people with Special Needs. We are currently trying to raise £50 000 to complete our new classroom and are always on the lookout for donors. Past Holifair’s have paid for a tractor, the start of our classroom, Solar Panels to make us more self sufficient, amongst other useful tools for the trainees on the project.

We are proud to be an environmentally-friendly festival. We actively encourage public transport and car-sharing, by providing information & links on our website and a parking ticket incentive to car-share. The majority of all energy used on site from solar, and we keep the use of disposable plastic to a minimum. Our bar cups are re-usable and our Solar power is provided by Resource Living and Mobile Solar Stage Productions, as well as our own Solar Panels.

Holifair has a main stage, Marquee stage, DJ area, chillout  and experimental areas for all kinds of musical enjoyment – which at Holifair ranges from folk, gypsy, punk, blues and reggae all the way to dance. There is a Kids Area with all kinds of workshops, storytelling, fun and games throughout the festival as well as The Secret Grove – our Wellbeing & Craft Area with artists, alternative therapists and practitioners of the mysterious and magical.
