Date for the diary:
Altrincham and District Festival 2021 CANCELLED.
2022 Proposed Dates 2 - 3 July

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.
