Carvings of animals and ferret roulette were among activities enjoyed by familes at an event held in an area of woodland used for burials.
More than 1,000 people attended the event in Kiln Road, North Weald, on Saturday.
Horse and cart rides, wicker weaving and archery also featured.
Maureen Coulson, of GreenAcres, said: “It was great. One man told me that he meant to come for ten minutes and he stayed for five hours.
“All money raised is being donated to charity Trees for Cities.
“We hold the event to show people that it is more than a burial site. It is a beautiful area of woodland. It is based in 52 acres of absolutely stunning park land.”
