As every year, the two-day FREE celebration for all the family is organised by Stratforward - Stratford's Business Improvement District, which represents over 465 shops, cafes, restaurants and other businesses.

Since it was established the Stratford River Festival has grown to become one of the region’s leading free festivals. 2015 was a record breaking year bringing nearly 60,000 revellers into the beautiful town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

The 2015 Stratford River Festival is also the proud winner of the Pride of Stratford - Tourism Initiative of the Year Award 2016!

For two whole days every summer the riverside comes alive and 2016’s event will feature more free events and activities than ever before, whilst also welcoming back a host of old favourites by popular demand. To get a flavour of what’s on offer, take a look at our 2014 & 2015 Galleries
