2021 Altrincham and District Festival Cancelled
Proposed dates for 2022 2 - 3 July

On both days we have the John Collins Fun Fair, stalls, a great selection of food, licensed bar area, dog show, car boot on the Sunday, and more. 


The Altrincham and District Festival will have a “rolling road closure” in place during the parade, so as the parade passes, the roads will re-open.
The parade will leave St Margaret’s road at 11am, it will then make its way down the downs, and on to Stamford New Road, this will be around 11.10.
The parade will then turn onto the Stockport Road Flyover, and pass The Old Hall at approximately 11.30.
We expect to turn at The Hare and Hounds around 11.45 and to arrive in Timperley Village for noon.
The parade will finish at our showground around 12.30.
The times are for guidance only and are very approximate and will be subject to change.
Please follow our Twitter account @AltyFestival for news and updates.

The Altrincham Festival started in 1977 as part of the queen’s silver jubilee celebrations. The festival has always been run and organised by volunteers and has always been non-for-profit.
We give a chance for local good causes, charities, and businesses to showcase what they do, and we still have a traditional grand parade and encourage everyone to come and take part and get involved.
The only chance that the area now gets for a local funfair is on festival day and this has always proven to be very popular.
On Festival day, our showground is open 11am to 5pm and has free entry to many stalls and attractions.
 2017 saw the Festivals 40th year as we celebrated our Ruby year, and as we come to 2018 we are changing things a little to make sure that the Altrincham Festival continues for another 40 years.
in 2019 for the first time the Altrincham and District Festival went over to a two-day event and this was a great success. 
Sadly in 2020 due to Covid-19 for the first time in our history, we had to cancel the Festival. 
2021 has seen the Altrincham and District Festival forced to cancel for a second year due to the Covid-19 restrictions not being lifted. 

The Altrincham Festival is now a Community Interest Company and are always looking for new volunteers to come and join us and to ensure that the Altrincham Festival carries on being The Biggest FREE Show in Trafford.
