After successfully making a splash for its debut event, the much-loved Waterside Festival will be returning for 2019 on Saturday 14 September, 11am –5.30pm.
Last year’s event proved to be another enjoyable occasion to bring communities together, and this year it’s looking to be bigger and better than before! Hosted around the beautiful town centre’s Waterside canal basin, (surrounded by Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, Bucks New University’s Aylesbury Campus, Waitrose and Travelodge) the festival will once again celebrate the canal’s rich two-hundred-year heritage alongside its new and exciting developments.
With so many of the favourites from last year’s event returning, including; the beautiful floating market, outstanding performances from local musicians, choirs and dance groups, and the free canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boarding sessions, a full day of summer fun awaits festival-goers. There’s also a whole host of new and exciting activities to suit everyone. Enjoy waterside wildlife themed arts & crafts, childhood games, merry-go-round and swing boats and be sure to refresh by visiting the delicious food court!
This year, Waterside Festival is grateful for Aylesbury Garden Town’s sponsorship and will be doing its bit to champion, celebrate and contribute to Aylesbury’s Garden Town status. This will include encouraging festival-goers to travel by bike to the event and take advantage of the free cycle parking, as well as delivering a ‘green’ food court discouraging the use of plastic and non-recyclable materials.
Waterside Festival is a non-profit community event sponsored by Aylesbury Garden Town and co-ordinated by Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership.
