The Çalış Carnival 2012 gets underway this year with the annual Spring Street Fair and Craft Market organised by the Çalış Children’s Charity.

The popular annual craft fair which is now in its 5th year, will take place on Sunday May 27 in the main street in Çalış between the Dolphin junction and the water taxi bridge.

Stalls will set up along both sides of the road which will be closed to traffic for the day and will be selling a huge range of crafts and handmade goods.

The market will be open from 11.00 to 17.00 pm and all net profits from stall fees and the 3C’s charity stall will go to help fund children’s projects in the Çalış/Fethiye area.

Advance bookings are now being taken for the fair. If you are interested in having a stall please ring 0536 3739520. Stalls cost 15 TL which includes the hire of 2 tables.

The 3C’s will also be holding their annual Charity Promises Auction on Wednesday 6 June to coincide with the Carnival activities.

The 5th Çalış Carnival which is organized by the Çalış Association for Tourism and Publicity takes place from Thursday 31 May to Saturday 2 June with the Carnival parade taking place on the Saturday.

Further details of the events taking place will be announced by the Association shortly.

Çalış is located in the south western Turkish town of Fethiye.
