Blacon Festival

A fun-filled community celebration is returning to Blacon this summer.

The Blacon Festival, organised by local social enterprise Avenue Services, will be taking place at Queen Elizabeth Fields on Blacon Avenue from 11am-3pm on Saturday 2 July.

The event is now in its 25th year and is recognised as Chester’s largest community-led festival, attracting thousands of visitors each year.

This year’s festival will have a truly global feel, with a ‘World Cup’ theme and visitors and stallholders encouraged to dress for the occasion, with prizes on offer for the best colourful costumes.

Chester MP Chris Matheson will officially open the festival at 11am, kicking off a packed day of fun and entertainment for all ages, including stalls, music, dance, games and plenty of delicious food and drink.

Paul Knight, Head of Avenue Services, said: “The Blacon Festival is always a highlight in our local calendar, and we are so excited to be returning this summer after an absence of two years due to the pandemic.

“We’ve got a great line-up in store and are looking forward to a fun-filled community event and a celebration of all the wonderful things that Blacon has to offer.”
