Tintern Fete

Tintern Fete logo
The 2018 Fete will take place on Saturday, 30th June.

As always, it will be free and open to all residents and visitors.
Now a fixture in the Wye Valley summer calendar, the Tintern Fete offers a magical mixture of children's attractions, day-long live music and singing, hot food, a bar, and a host of interesting stalls.

They’re back!
Yes, the fabulous Monmouth Rock Choir, who were such a hit last year with their sparkling musical programme and wonderful voices, have been signed up to open the fete again this year. The only difference - we will get to hear more of them. They will be singing for three sessions throughout the afternoon instead of two. You can never have too much of a good thing!

Tintern Fete would not be the same without the return of some of our long-time favourite attractions so this year we are especially pleased to have back with us these great people:

2017 Fete Report
The Tintern Festivals Association prepared a report on the 2017 Fete which can be viewed below. Its main aim is to provide evidence of the use of funds to grant-makers who kindly supported the event but it also gives an insight into how much organisation is required to put on a successful fete each year.
