Dunchurch Fête : 16th June 2018! 

Miss Dunchurch 2017 and her attendant princesses

The Fete has been an annual event for over 30 years now and has raised many thousands of pounds for Local Good Causes and Charities.

Over the last 12 years alone we have donated over £90,000 of your money to a wide range of organisations, charities and good causes in our lovely village!

The Festival Group wold like to thank all our helpers, donors and everyone who attended any of our events during the year for your continued support. We couldn't do it without YOU!

Projects submitted to the Dunchurch Festival Group for a grant are considered each year.

2018's Theme : All CREATURES great and small!

The Parade will be led by our very own Miss Dunchurch and her attendant Princesses of 2018!

Will you be the winners of 2018's Fete Programme cover competition? 

Many acts, entertainment and open-mic performers will be appearing.

This year we are very lucky to have the Fete opened by Keith Wedgebury from BBC Coventry & Warwickshire!

As expected the BBQ, Bar, Tea and Cakes and the Grand Raffle will be supplemented by dozens of other village and trade stalls.

Plus, this year we will be running a new Dog Show!
FREE Entries on the day at the “Pawprints” Stall; Fancy Dress, Waggiest Tail and Best Rescue Dog categories!

And remember our surpluses are all channelled back into deserving causes in YOUR community! Please come and join us, whatever the weather, and have FUN!!


The Parade will be led by our very own Miss Dunchurch (Emily Kilborn) and her attendant Princesses, (Holly Compton and Indie Rose Cava)!

The Parade route can be seen on the map below, starting at St. Peter's Church and ending at the Sportfield:
