About event

18 July 2020

This festival follows previous successful events with over 6,000 attending sharing in fun and frivolities from dawn til dusk.

This locally attended festival is hosted on the park in the quaint village of Barrowford, Lancashire. Fun and quirky competitions for adults and children, a 'mans' creche' area complete with classic cars, super cars, bikes and all sorts of gadgets. Great bars serving, craft ales, wines, prosecco and spirits and many quality food producers. We  have local arts and crafts stalls, fantastic live music and d.j. set to finish. Suitable for all age.

Run by a professional and highly enthusiastic local team, much care is taken to give this event a traditional large village fair feel with something for everyone.

There is a strongman comp, an amazing kids area, the list goes on and on, all we can say is get yourself to this event for a wonderful day out filled with nostalgia!

All pitches are on the grass, with parking close to the event.  Advise setting up any gazebo's the day before. Security is on over night.  No electric provided. Street Foods, Artisan Food and Crafts Court traders are sought. The towns of Nelson, Colne, Padiham and Burnley are also on the doorstep of this event with excellent local transport links.
