After 15 years of operating as a monthly event, until the end of 2012 the Fair will continue to take place on the first Sunday of every month, where-after it will become an even larger, two-day quarterly festival, starting in February 2013.
It will then take place every three months instead of monthly.

In addition to the usual large selection of mind, body, spirit, artisan and ‘green’ exhibitors, the new-format quarterly Life.Style & Eco Fair will feature a wide range of conscious living films, speakers (including overseas personalities), workshops, performances and exhibitors.
