Preparations for The Finery Fair 2016 are in full swing and we are so excited about all the possibilities this year holds.

The first Finery Fair took place on Heritage day, 24 September 2015 at Rosemary Hill and with 3500 fair goers that came throughout the day, 70 Finery Makers participating, 5 camels entertaining the children, 4 live music acts, 2 theater shows and 1 art exhibition, it was a great success. This year the spring affair of Pretoria is going even bigger.  As you have probably seen on our Facebook page we are very happy to be partnering with the beautiful Kievits Kroon Country Estate as our venue for 2016 and the years to come!

Even though we are excited about the new partnership with Kievits Kroon, the first Finery Fair would not have been possible without the partnership with our first venue, Rosemary Hill.  Believing in our vision, guiding us, and helping us put together a successful, first time event within two and a half months, we will always be grateful to Rosemary Hill and will never forget the humble beginnings we came from.

We at The Finery Fair believe there lies so much strength in unity which is why we decided to make our theme for Finery Fair 2016, COLLABORATION. Our lineup of musicians will come together to compose a Finery Theme song, showcasing our country’s finest talent as part of the Heritage day festivities. We also have a Finery Maker that will create a signature Finery Tea, as well as a Finery Wine Range and many more.

This year, we will host 80 high quality Finery Makers, selling a variety of products from leather, jewelry, fashion, a range of children’s products, body products, pottery, décor and more. During the course of the weekend there will also be theatre productions, puppet shows, an art exhibition, a lineup of bands and an amazing selection of food, wine, craft gin, whiskey and beer. We are also introducing our Finery Makers corner, which will feature a variety of fun workshops including the making of mozzarella at home, introduction to the art of fermentation, beer brewing and wine tasting.

Watch this space as we will shortly be revealing our lineup for The Finery Fair 2016 and we will also be doing features on our talented Finery Makers.
