Stratford River Festival
For two whole days, every summer the riverside comes alive, with a host of free events and activities, whilst also welcoming back a host of old favourites by popular demand.
Since it was established Stratford River Festival has grown to become one of the region’s leading free festivals. 2019 again brought over 70,000 revellers into the beautiful town of Stratford-upon-Avon. The party continues into the 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 and 2018 - as voted by members of the public. Thank you again!
This two-day FREE celebration for all the family, is organised by Stratforward - Stratford-upon-Avon's Business Improvement District, on behalf of 420 fabulous town centre shops, cafes, restaurants and other professional businesses.
