The Open (One Person ENterprise) Fair is a national movement of free, community-based talent expos taking place all over the country. The aim is to help people to make a living from their own skills, ideas and initiative. Every enterprise starts with one person. Open Fair is coming to Mayo, and will be the biggest ever indoor fair event to happen in Castlebar, and it is taking place on 4th December 2011 in the Royal Theatre Castlebar from 11-6pm. The entrance to the Fair is absolutely free for the visitors, and visitors can view new products, skills and services provided by local people. It is a great opportunity to engage in some christmas shopping whilst also supporting local enterprise.
The Fair will have close to a 100 local exhibitors showcasing their goods and services on the day, with visitors able to enjoy children's entertainment, face-painting and live music. There will be plenty of choice with regard to refreshments and visitors will also be able to indulge in a carvery Sunday lunch in the Royal Theatre Hotel. It is a great opportunity for a fantastic family day out in support of local businesses.
The Open Fair organisers would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Pat Jennings, who was voted the Mayo Person of The Year 2011, for his support in making the Open Fair in Castlebar possible.
