The Benalla Teddy and Friends Fair is returning to town after its successful inaugural event last year.
The event will feature close to 30 traders, who will fill the St Joseph’s school hall with displays, activities and hands-on workshops to engage people of all ages.
GingerBears owner and fair organiser Jan Hateley said the fair was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the industry and what was available.
‘‘Hopefully more people from other regions come, the locals were wonderful in their support (last year),’’ Ms Hateley said.
This year will see a new bear and doll display with a viewer’s choice award. Entries must be hand-made, and forms will be available this week at GingerBears.
Another feature of the fair is the raffle, from which all proceeds will be donated to Benalla Health Ladies’ Auxiliary.
There will also be a series of workshops on Saturday, March 16, for beginners and experienced bear makers.
