The Vale Earth Fair is an annual outdoor music and arts festival held at the Vale Castle, Guernsey, Channel Islands. It takes place within and around the walls of the ruins of this 17th century castle, situated on a coastal hill overlooking the other Channel Islands of Herm & Sark. The aim of the festival is to raise funds and awareness for humanitarian causes, in a way that limits and offsets the environmental impact of the event. It is organised by a voluntary collective of like-minded individuals
who aim to raise money for charitable organisations whilst supporting live music on Guernsey

The Vale Earth Fair festival has been held on and off since 1976. It has been held annually since 1995, with the exception of 2010. Up until 1992 the festival generally only featured local talent on one stage but has expanded over recent years and now attracts acts from the UK, Europe, and beyond, with music spread across 5 separate stages.

The emphasis of the event has always been on live music, of whatever genre, which is the focus of the Main Stage, Viewalalu Stage, and Acoustic Lounge. There are also 2 DJ Tents covering most styles of dance music throughout the day and night. Around the site there are stalls, a Licensed Bar, Vegetarian Food, a Chill Out Tent and Children’s play area.
