2011 Çaliş Carnival Craft Fair

Our friends at Fethiye Times have informed us that the 2011 Çalış Carnival gets underway this Sunday with a Spring Street Fair and
Craft Market organised by the Calis Children’s Charity.

Now in its fourth year, the popular annual fair will again take place in the main street in Çalış between the Dolphin junction and the water taxi bridge.

Stalls will be 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.

Other events planned for the popular Çalış Carnival Week includes; A 3C’s Charity Beach BBQ at Mimoza Restaurant on Tuesday 24 May

  • A Street party and Miss Çalış competition on Wednesday 25 May
