2018 River Festival Sports Village

Saturday 14th July and Sunday 15th July 2018

The Bedford River Festival is an established bi-annual, high profile, community celebration that is recognised as one of the biggest outdoor festivals in the Country. Bedford River Festival has been running for over 30 years and has grown bigger and better as the years have gone by! The 2016 Festival saw audiences of over 350,000 with a huge 40,000 people attending the Sports Village.

The festival is supported by a range of local, regional and national sponsors and is based on an impressive Riverside site next to the Great Ouse.

The event includes a wide range of attractions from Street Parades, Raft Races, Fireworks, heritage sites and trade stalls to a massive Music stage, world cuisine marquee, and an illuminated boat display! There is something for everyone!

 

The Sports Village is located next to one of the main access bridges to the festival and offers thousands of visitors the opportunity to take part in, watch, find out about and enjoy a massive range of sports, health and leisure opportunities.

Attractions include a Sports Stage for displays of dance, gym and martial arts. A huge climbing wall, canoes and rowing boats offer the chance for visitors to try out a new activity. Local gyms, fitness clubs and local sports clubs “shop window” their programmes and activities.
