From its beginnings as a summer fair and fun dog show in 2012, this family orientated event has developed into a Big Summer Weekend with the launch of Concert in the Park in 2015.  This annually recurring weekend in mid- August, has helped to both attract new audiences and maximise revenues at a peak visitor time. 

The Summer Fair attracts over 2,000 visitors each year, with up to 50 stalls plus refreshments, and the Fun Dog Show is a popular way for Rushmere to engage positively with a core user group.

The Concert in the Park is a ticketed event for up to 500 people and has steadily grown focussing on local talent.
