Please note, this event has been postponed. With everything from onion eating to dancing dogs, there’s nothing quite like the annual Onion Fayre to tickle your taste buds.

An event like no other, Newent Onion Fayre will feature exhibitors from across the nation competing to win trophies for the most faultless produce. It’s also the place to be if you can bear to witness the infamous onion-eating contest.

Taking place on Saturday 12 September 2020, the fayre is the only one of its kind which pays homage to the noble vegetable. Visitors can witness the world-famous onion-eating event, which tests the strong-stomachs of competitors as they race to consume an entire raw onion in the fastest amount of time.

2020 is also set to see a bigger than ever, with three stages hosting live music, street entertainers, fairground rides and market stalls selling everything from crafts to plants. The ‘funion zone’ will also cater for the little ones, whilst the dog arena will see dancing dogs and even some police pooches.

Please note, this event has been postponed. See Coronavirus event cancellations and venue closures in Gloucestershire for the very latest.
