Phoenix Child Welfare is excited to once again host the annual and colourful Phoenix Fair in a bid to raise much-needed funds to enable them to continue providing the community with urgent social services.
This year’s fair will be held at the Rydalvale Sports Grounds in Phoenix, from Friday, May 25, to Sunday, May 27, and from Thursday, May 31, to Sunday June 3.
The Phoenix Fair has always been synonymous with pulsating entertainment for the whole family while providing an attractive business opportunity to exhibitors.
The popularity of the Phoenix Fair has consistently ensured a large public attendance, which makes the the event a lucrative business opportunity for stall holders.
Another important element of the initiative is the edufair segment, which aims to provide educational entertainment and a variety of enlightening exhibits in order to broaden the scope of education that pupils are exposed to.
The exciting and varied exhibitors in the line-up include the Natal Sharks Board, Fire and Disaster Management, the Natural Science Museum, Freedom Stationary –Marlin Kids Corner, Department of Water and Sanitation, Department of Transport, Pioneer Foods – Sasko Bread, the Film and Publication Board, Wildlife and Environment Society of SA, Umgeni Water and Eskom.
