To celebrate the changing of the seasons, East Village is bringing residents and locals together for a day of fun at the East Village Autumn Fair at Victory Park, Celebration Avenue, E20. On Saturday 20th September from 12-6pm, East Village will be putting on the very best of fair activities, including a tombola, face painting and a coconut shy, as well as some more quirky and experimental workshops and stalls.
Visitors to the fair will be able to enjoy a wide range of amusements, such as Human Mega Scrabble, Kardioke from the House of Hot Breath, an active karaoke challenge which combines the challenge of running on a treadmill whilst singing along to club hits, live screen printing from Print Club London, and a mini Vintage market amongst other attractions. Hungry fair-goers can indulge in food & drink from a variety of street food favourites, as well as tea and cake provided by the local vicar. For those who want to enjoy a guilt-free treat, there will be ice cream on offer – but only if you earn it and churn it on the bicycle-powered ice cream stand!
East Village residents will be enthralled by the transformation of their neighbourhood into an urban fairytale, with bunting and maypole ribbons and trees draped in fabric. To add to the atmosphere, the ‘main stage’ area just outside Victory Gardens will be decorated with sailing boats hanging from the trees that will play uplifting music all day long.
The East Village Autumn Fair isn’t the only attraction on the 20th, as around the corner, the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will be hosting the Classic Car boot sale on the same weekend. Vintage lovers will be in their element, with a display of classic cars going all the way back to the 1963 Austin Cambridge, a vintage clothing and accessories store and a bar on a double decker bus, spinning top vinyl hits. For those looking to take a step back in time in an otherwise contemporary neighbourhood, this fun-packed weekend at East Village will be the perfect antidote to the end of summer blues.
