Boat loads of fun planned for Stratford River Festival

Date Posted: 09/03/2015

The annual Stratford River Festival will take place from 4th to 5th July, in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Centred around the River Avon, festival organisers Stratforward BID have promised an action packed programme. A craft village, family and charity zone, climbing wall and a bandstand featuring live music will be followed by an illuminated boat parade on the Saturday evening.

The sky will continue to be lit up by the grand firework finale, which will see 100 boats moored on the river as the festival draws to a close.

Food refreshments will be available throughout the weekend from one of the 12 international concessions, including Thai, Italian and Japanese cuisine. Bars serving real ale, cocktails, Pimm’s and wine will also line the river bank. 

Over 50,000 people are expected to visit the festival, now in its seventh year, over the course of the two days.
