It’s with regret that following the recent government announcement to delay the lifting of lockdown restrictions, we have sadly had no option but to cancel this year’s Festival.
We have worked hard for several months to put on the Festival and it’s not been an easy decision to cancel.
I am sure that you will understand. We will be contacting and refunding stallholders.
Looking forward to 2022, the date for the diary as we celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee the Altrincham and District Festival will be back bigger and better than ever before.
2 – 3 July 2022
Our popular dog show is back once again this year. Please see attached 2021 dog show entry forms that you can download , complete, and send in.

On the Festival Showground we will have an amazing selection of food outlets to choose from as well as the popular licenced bar with a good selection on alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
The fantastic John Collins Funfair is back with us on both days with a great selection of rides for all ages. Fun for all the family!
We need amazing sponsors and advertisers to enable The Festival to happen, and to be able to offer free entry to the showground, and to allow participation in the Grand Parade. We have a fantastic range of both Sponsorship and Advertising opportunities available. This is your chance to get your name behind this massively popular, highly visible, community event, as well as any other help that you can offer.
And finally, but most importantly, we need you to help us. Can you spare some time to join the committee and help with the organisation of the festival, or be a volunteer on the day as a Parade Marshal or Showground Marshal? It’s really rewarding to take part and help ensure that the Festival is the best it can be, and your help will really make a big difference.
After the difficult decision last year to have to cancel the Altrincham and District Festival due to the global pandemic, we really want to make the 2021 Altrincham and District Festival the best one yet, and with your help and support, we know that we are going to make this happen.
Remember, the Altrincham and District Festival is YOUR FESTIVAL. Own it. Be part of and proud of it.
The Festival Committee
