Since its resurrection in 1996, the Newent Onion Fayre has grown to now fill the whole town centre and park with an amazing array of stalls and entertainment, providing a fantastic and exciting day out for all the family.

Each year the Newent Onion Fayre has become increasingly popular and now in 2018 they estimate that 15-20,000 people will visit the Newent Onion Fayre on September 8th between 10am and 5pm.

Their three music stages provide great music throughout the day, many of the acts performing are from the incredibly rich pool of local talent.

The Park area will be particularly exciting to visit this year. The dog arena will be hosting much more than the dog show, with all sorts of canine demonstrations planned.

The Funion Zone is back for its second year, with fun activities for the younger visitor.

With over 150 stalls and rides filling the streets there is sure to be something for everyone.

The Onion Show in the Memorial Hall is a must see. Huge onions, leeks and alliums of all varieties on show, not forgetting onion-based recipes.

The event you really shouldn’t miss though is the world-famous Onion Eating Competition held on the main stage at 1pm. Why not have a go – come to the main stage before 12 noon or register online at:
