Stratford-upon-Avon’s River Festival in the summer is a two-day extravaganza on the banks of the River Avon.
A real treat for water lovers, the River Festival is a true celebration of life on the River Avon in the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Get into the festival spirit with a pint of locally brewed ale or a traditional English Pimm’s from the on-site bars. Relax by the river and tuck into vintage-style tasty treats from the themed food outlets. And if you're feeling extra adventurous, head out on a boat ride down the River Avon.
For those who prefer to stay on dry land, there is a craft village, a climbing wall, a family zone, a variety of street entertainment, and musical performances on the bandstand.
On the Saturday, get a good spot on the riverbank for the night spectacular, an illuminated boat parade featuring hundreds of boats moored on the river for a grand firework display.
Stratford-upon-Avon's River Festival 2019 takes place between 6-7 July.
