The Lane Cove Village Fair is one of the highlights of the Cameraygal Festival. It also ends the Festival with a big bang.
The Fair is organised by Lane Cove Rotary and is loved by young and old. There is entertainment, food, market stalls and displays by community organisations. This year the Lane Cove Fair is bigger, brighter and better. Not only will Burns Bay Road, the Plaza and Longueville Road be full of activities, there will also be some amazing events on Pottery Green. In fact the Lane Cove Village Fair started on Pottery Green. One of the first events had live sheep and unfortunately one of them escaped and found its way to Longueville Road!
ITC has coincided the launch of our website with the Lane Cove Fair. We will have a stall at the Fair and we would love to meet you at the stall. Please come along and say hi!! We will have giveaways, competitions and some surprises. Go Vita Lane Cove has just released their very own range of fresh, preservative free peanut butter and if you visit our stall we will give you a ticket, the first 40 people to like the Go Vita Facebook page and then check in at Go Vita will receive a 200g tub of peanut butter.
We will give you the opportunity to meet local author Jodie McMahon who has published a book called We Are Different.
We will also be selling a range of Tea Towels (including our world famous Lane Cove Tea Towel). We will be donating 10% of our sale proceeds of the Lane Cove Tea Towel to the Delvena Woman’s Refuge (read our blog here).
Here is a run down of all the fun of the fair (pardon the pun)

The Potter Green Showground area has been organised by Furever Pets.
Furever Pets is very excited to be able to get out even further into the community to showcase how all their support has been so valuable to the success of our adoptions and in store programmes.
Furever Pets will be having a large Adoption and Information Tent on the day showcasing domestic animals from rescues, pounds and shelters looking for new homes and key information about how to go about finding not only the right pet but also the best fitting rescue and process for families in order to make the right choice for them. It gives the public a chance to see some of the key partnerships Furever Pets is working with and a chance to see why we are so passionate about helping those in need.
The Furever Pets Tent will be fundraising for their in store charity ‘Furever Pets Charitable Aid’ which assists us in caring for animals while they are awaiting their new home and keep our in store programmes going. Funds on the day will also be going to rescues and charities in need of monetary support and providing goods needed such as food and litter so they can continue to rescue animals in need. We aim to show the community how they can be involved and make a difference in their own areas.
