River Festival Weekend

July 17, 2020 11:00 AM

River Festival 2021 logoThis weekend would have been River Festival Weekend. Sadly we have had to postpone this until 2021 due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

I am sure you will understand, with 250,000 visitors expected over the weekend it would have been impossible for the event to be run safely.

However, we do have a date for 2021 and it is now exactly one year away! River Festival 2021 will return on 17 and 18 July 2021.

I have recorded a short video, which you can see here.

I am determined that River Festival 2021 will be our best ever with a multitude of events and attractions taking place over the weekend. There will be numerous river activities, five live music and performance stages, raft and dragon boat races along with a continental market and much much more.

You can find out more and keep up to date with the plans for River Festival 2021 at https://riverfestival.bedford.gov.uk/ and register to participate in the various events here.

There are still sponsorship, hospitality and trade opportunities available at River Festival 2021, you can find out more here.
