Thank you to all who helped make this year's Eco-Fair on Monday 28th August 2023 such a great event 🙂
Run by volunteers at Carshalton based charity EcoLocal, we aim to make this event South London's & Surrey's best EcoFair 🙂 this year we plan to have 3 solar powered stages with live music, 100+ stalls, delicious vegetarian and vegan hot and cold food, real ale bar, children's activties, demonstrations, eco-projects, artisan craft and much much more, including a free electric bus service to the event. Whatever your age or interest, we hope there will be plenty to capture your imagination and make you smile at this year’s EcoFair. With so much to see, hear, do, learn about and taste, this is the ideal day out for all the family.
We will update this page as we get closer to the event.

EcoFair is organised by local charity EcoLocal which is a non-profit organisation full of volunteers who put their time and energy into developing activities and resources for the local community. The event costs the charity well over £25,000 of up-front costs to put on. There are no staff costs in running the event, it is run entirely by volunteers. So as a small local charity we need to raise the cash to fund the EcoFair.
In 2022 we raised funds for our activities supporting people with disabilities or experiencing mental health issues or who are isolated, to participate in community life through outdoor eco projects. Our eco-wellbeing, gardening, food-growing and inclusive cycling sessions make a huge difference to people’s physical and mental health. They increase social interaction and connection with nature and are good for the environment, helping people take action on climate change. So, any surplus funds raised after covering event costs this year will be put toward the cost of these activities again.
