List of fundraising ideas (fetes and fairs)

Whether its coconut shies, fortune telling or welly wanging, fetes and fairs are great fun and can be good money-makers. For many organisations putting on a good fete is very important.

If you cannot organise your own fair it still might be possible to take a few simple ideas and use them at someone else's event. Often several local organisations will provide stalls, booths or attractions at a town fair or similar. Or fete ideas may be added to any other fundraiser you had going on.

Below are fundraisers that are perfect for fetes, fairs and any other appropriate opportunity:
