Stratford River Festival 2018 

Saturday June 30th and Sunday July 1st, 2018

A two-day FREE celebration for all the family, organised by Stratforward - Stratford-upon-Avon's Business Improvement District, which represents 450 town centre shops, cafes, restaurants, and other businesses.

Since it was established Stratford River Festival has grown to become one of the region’s leading free festivals. 2017 was a record-breaking year bringing over 70,000 revelers into the beautiful town of Stratford-upon-Avon. The party continues into the vibrant town with so many places to eat and drink or be entertained.

Stratford River Festival has won multiple awards including the Pride of Stratford Tourism Initiative of the Year Award, in both 2016 and 2018.   Also, the River Festival won Stratford's Best Festival by Stratford On-Line in 2016 & 2017 - as voted by members of the public.  Thank you!

For two whole days, every summer the riverside comes alive. 2018’s event will feature more free events and activities than ever before, whilst also welcoming back a host of old favourites by popular demand.

Stratford River Festival 2017 was an amazing experience for over 70 000 visitors. To get a flavour of what’s on offer, see the fantastic entertainment programme on pages 13 and 14 in last year's River Festival brochure or take a look at our photo galleries.
