      EVENT DETAILS
      Kensington Spring Fair, Rhodes Park, Johannesburg.

      We are referring to Kensington, Johannesburg, South Africa.

      The Kensington Spring Fair, the brainchild of Gerald Heine, is a long standing tradition in Kensington, and had its inception in 1989. Except for a period of 2 years from 2002 when it became the Kensington Village Market and was held on the Rhodes Park soccer fields, it has traditionally been held in Rhodes Park near the lake on the first Sunday of September.

      The 23rd Kensington Spring Fair will take place on Sunday 2 September from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Rhodes Park.

      Volunteers from Ilka (I Love Kensington Association) and the community organize the fair and all funds raised are donated to charities within Kensington and surrounds. 22 Years of fun in the sun, entertainment, and lots of interesting items on sale has culminated in an event that sees visitors of up to 10,000 attending the Fair annually.

      Entertainment will be provided by a variety of artists who are guaranteed to keep everybody enthralled including the Fighting Fit crew from the Kensington Sports Academy, Mandeville Dog Club, dancers, various musicians and many more! The annual Mr and Miss Kensington competition will be presented as well as the brand new Best Spring Hat competition and a Best Stall competition with oodles of great prizes donated by local businesses.

      Anybody who wishes to donate more prizes can contact Lornette Joseph at chair@kensington.org.za

      This is superb day out for the whole family with diverse stalls from arts and crafts, esoteric, bric-a-brac, farmers’ stalls, deli stalls and a variety of food stalls catering to various tastes ranging from Boerewors Rolls, Chip and Dip, Indian cuisine, to Chinese cuisine and lots more.

      The Scouts will again set up a zip line and the brave and intrepid can whiz down the line for a great adrenalin rush. Jumping castles and other entertainment geared towards children will ensure that everybody has a great time.

      Applications for stalls can be obtained from our Facebook page (Kensington Spring Fair), the Rhodes Park Library or email kensispringfair@gmail.com. Closing date for application is 22 August 2012.

      More helpers are needed to work as Marshalls on the morning of the Spring
      Fair to help vendors find their allocated stalls. Interested parties should email kensispringfair@gmail.com to volunteer their services.
