Rock out this summer at Blacon’s biggest community celebration.

The Blacon Festival, organised by local social enterprise Avenue Services, will be taking place at Queen Elizabeth Fields on Blacon Avenue from 1-5pm on Saturday 1 July.

The annual event is now in its 26th year and is recognised as Chester’s largest community-led festival, attracting thousands of visitors each year. This year’s event will have everyone jamming out to the sounds of summer with a music festival theme.

Chester MP Samantha Dixon will officially open the festival at 1pm, kicking off a day packed full of fun and entertainment for all ages including stalls, music, games, dancing and much more.

Paul Knight, Head of Avenue Services, said: “The Blacon Festival is always a highlight in our calendar and I’m delighted that we have another fantastic event lined up this year for our community.”
