Although over th border in Devon I think this 3-day show is worth including on the CACD site. It will feature a mass of crafting delights, it includes textile displays, demonstrations, lectures, workshops and over 170 national and local craft businesses selling crafting supplies. Plenty of free parking, a free shuttle bus service from Exeter train station, there is an airport in Exeter, and there are several coach companies in Cornwall running a special service direct to the event.

In 2016 the new committee took the May Fair back to the town and back to its community roots.
After three years with overwhelming positive feedback from residents, businesses, exhibitors and the wider community, the new-new committee will be keeping the event in the town for 2019.
The Saltash May Fair has an estimated footfall of around 4,500 throughout the whole day over Fore Street, Victoria Gardens and Longstone Park.
Saltash is filled with arts, crafts, street entertainment and a whole lot more for one day only.
We would love to see you there. Visit the Facebook Saltash May Fair events page

Interested in crafts? Planning a wedding? Want to shop in Wadebridge town centre? Is woodland your thing?
Whatever your interest, we aim to make you very welcome here.
There’s something for every member of the family at the Royal Cornwall Show.
It’s the county’s biggest annual event and is brim-full of exhibits and activities which offer so much in the way of entertainment, competition, information, shopping and all that’s best in food and farming.
It's a time and place to meet old friends, conduct business, enjoy Cornwall in all its glory and to welcome thousands of visitors from outside our county.
This is a top agricultural show which attracts increasing numbers of animals, entered into the hundreds of classes which are refined each year. And year on year people travel from further and further afield in the hope of coming away with an award.
Dog and goat sections; rare breed classes. A top flower show and thriving countryside area. Rabbits, cage birds, cavies - even bees get noticed here!
We support and promote Cornish-grown and Cornish-produced food both in the trade section and in our own cafes and restaurants.
Main ring entertainment is mounted on a grand scale and the traditional steam fair is a colourful extravaganza; there are stages and avenues alive with music, song and dance.
You can come to the Royal Cornwall Show with a single-minded ambition to buy a tractor or a car. Here is where you will see them all on display. Royal Cornwall Show, Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge, Cornwall PL27 7JE

Saltash Regatta is one of the most colourful events held in Cornwall and certainly for South East Cornwall is the most popular annual Regatta.
Gig racing, Flash Boat Regattas, sailing, canoeing, swimming and even a cardboard boat race. Saltash Regatta is not just about water sports, there is so much more ashore to keep everyone in the family happy and very entertained.
On land we have a market filled with arts and crafts from local makers, crafters and traders. Visit the Saltash Regatta and Waterside Festival 2019 Facebook events page
