The award winning Bedford River Festival will return on 14th and 15th July 2018!
The 2016 festival saw record visitor numbers with over 250,000 spectators and participants on site over the weekend and we expect larger crowds in 2018 as the festival continues to build on previous successes with it’s
colourful milieu of live entertainment, river events, parade, funfair and fete with activities as diverse as raft races, fireworks, sports, arts and heritage villages.
Indeed, entertainment features strongly at the event with displays from local community groups in the arts and
sporting worlds, to a multitude of professional acts. The Bedford River Festival is free to the public and offers
numerous opportunities to participate in, or just to relax and enjoy a vast array of activities and entertainment.
