The 2016 two-day Maidenhead Festival will take place over the weekend of 23rd - 24th July. The family-focussed event will have the theme of Circus and feature music, a beach, fairground, stalls and side shows and if you're lucky you might spot a friendly clown or acrobat!
The festival will be centred around Kidwells Park but aims to involve the whole of the town and local community. All are encouraged to dress up and join in!
This year we see the return of the fantastic beach made of REAL SAND, the fab fair ground, an even bigger and better market area, gourmet food stalls, and loads of LIVE MUSIC... all weekend!
We are currently working on a fantastic array of entertainment for you to enjoy and will annoucne our headliners and other acts once they are confirmed.
The festival is FREE to attend for everyone!
Maidenhead Festival is the biggest, regularly organised, free, public event in Maidenhead and has many benefits for our community, including building community spirit and goodwill. It also helps to strengthen the charities and other organisations which take part by providing a platform for publicity, fund raising and recruitment.
Up to 8,000 people from Maidenhead enjoyed Maidenhead Festival last year by joining the crowds at the concert and fireworks, browsing the stalls or by taking part themselves.
“It’s your town and your festival,” said chairman Lisa Hunter. “The festival is a brilliant event for the whole family. Maidenhead Festival is organised by the community, for the community."
There are many ways for local business, groups and residents to get involved in Maidenhead Festival including volunteering to be part of the onsite-team, signing up as a stall holder or entertainer.
If you want to be part of this year’s festival please do get in touch. Festival organisers are also looking for sponsors to help meet the cost of the event, which is free for the public to attend.
