9th

FRI

Over the 2nd weekend in December our beautiful town will be hosting a weekend of festive entertainment, food and drink, along with plenty of opportunities to pick up some unique Christmas gifts. Now in its 12th year the Fowey Christmas Market continues to go from strength to strength.

 

Whether you are a local resident or welcome visitor to our gorgeous town, you'll find plenty to do when the market opens with an evening of Festive entertainment on Friday 9th December from 5.00pm – 8.30pm and continues trading all day Saturday and Sunday.

 

Live Events South West are arranging the exciting selection of traders in the Town Quay Marquees and there will be local crafts in the Webb Street Market and Town Hall. There will also be a second market place within Fowey Leisure Centre with a regular mini-bus service between the two. When you visit you will undoubtedly find some of your favourite stalls alongside some new and exciting produce to enliven this year’s market.

 

As ever, there will be a seasoned mix of exhibitors with an emphasis on exceptional food, with numerous delicacies for you to savour...  and as for entertainment, we are planning seasonal music supplied by local choirs and musicians, along with our special stilt walkers, who will be leading visitors from the market through the town centre and over to our Victorian funfair! As well as all this, Fowey has a fantastic array of unique independent shops, great restaurants and cafes, hotels and guest houses all in the most beautiful location.

 

Also, what self respecting Christmas Market would be the same without a visit from Father Christmas himself?  Well, get ready to meet him in person as he sails into town on Friday evening. Why not join in the lantern parade too? Otherwise, you can visit him at his grotto in the Butter Market over the weekend

 

Watch this space for more details – a free programme will be available in early November and we should have the full timetable of events by the end of October.  We hope to see you here!

  • PARKING – Take the main route into Fowey and follow directions to the MAIN car park. Please don’t try to drive down to the Town Centre or you will get stuck! The town bus does a trip from the car park to the Town Centre about every 15 minutes if you don’t fancy the walk, and can take you back up the hill after a hard days shopping.
  • FERRY – If you are coming from the direction of Looe and Polperro you can bring your car across on the Bodinnick Ferry and park at Caffa Mill. From there is an easy walk to the Town Centre (specific times can be obtained here).
  • DOGS – There are many shops, cafes and pubs in Fowey that welcome dogs, however the marquees are not suitable for our canine friends as they can get too crowded for those closer to the ground.

The Fowey Christmas Market is brought to you by The Port of Fowey Chamber of Commerce. We aim to bring together local businesses so that they can work together on matters that affect them all. Our focus is on doing those things that are better done collectively, rather than by businesses working individually.

Our aim is to support the development of a vibrant and sustainable business community.  We do this by:

Encouraging networking and discussion. We hold regular networking events, such as our regular Curry Club evenings, and by holding bi monthly Chamber meetings (all members are welcome to attend these and we publish the agenda and minutes). Chamber committee members are also always keen to help and support new and existing businesses by providing information and listening to concerns. We will also be offering a series of educational events where members can learn new skills that will support their businesses

 

Raising the profile of the town and bringing in visitors. Our main focus is on organising the Christmas Market and the Summer Big Gig Event. But we do other things as well, such as sponsoring the town map

 

Representing our members where there is an issue where we can be of help. High on our agenda for issues that need to be addressed are parking, traffic and town signage and we are looking for volunteers to take the lead in tackling these areas

We work with other organisations in the town such as the Town Council, Fowey Forum and Regatta Committee  to ensure that our activities are properly coordinated.

We rely completely on volunteers – so if anyone wants to get involved (either on a specific project or issue, or in the general running of the Chamber), then they should contact any of the Chamber committee members, using the contact details below.
