Double the fun at the 2019 Altrincham Festival
This year’s Altrincham & District Festival is set to be bigger and better than ever with the event scheduled to run over two days in July, starting on Saturday 6th July 2019. For the first time since 1977 the biggest free show in Trafford will have activities running over both the Saturday and Sunday, bringing more opportunity for family fun to the people across the region and surrounding areas.
The popular grand parade will take place on the Saturday, leaving Altrincham town centre at 11am before making its way to the Beech Fields showground which will be open from 11am until 6pm. The free to enter event will have the John Collins Funfair with rides for all the family as well as high quality street food stalls and a wide selection of drinks available at the on-site bar. The double day bonanza will feature the festival’s much-loved sound stage, showcasing some of the amazing local talent in the region, across both days. A selection of stalls from local businesses and charitable good causes will display their goods and promote their services, highlighting the resources available across the region.
Plans are afoot to make the Sunday, the brand-new second day of the festival, just as entertaining.
As well as the same funfair, food and drink and sound stage, the volunteer committee are finalising the details for even more family friendly entertainment, which includes the addition of our four-legged canine friends. Watch this space for confirmed events!
We know how much the local community enjoys the arrival of the Altrincham & District Festival and come rain or shine it is always a hugely popular event. With us extending the festival over two days, we need even more pairs of hands to help us make it a tremendous success. We are looking for more volunteers to lend some time to either marshal the parade or help us on the festival showground. If you can spare some time, please get in touch with us. There’s also plenty of opportunity to enter our grand parade – the more floats the merrier! And we have lots of space for local businesses, charities or community groups to pitch a stall on our showground. Let’s make this year’s Altrincham Festival not just a day to remember, but a whole weekend to enjoy!
