River Festival postponed 

We regret to announce that the Bedford River Festival has been rescheduled for July 2022.

With ongoing uncertainty about big outdoor events this summer due to COVID-19 and the months of planning required to organise the River Festival particularly, as one of the largest free festivals in the UK, the Council has decided to postpone this event.

More information about the entertainment for the 2022 Festival will be released via the River Festival website and there will be lots to look forward to.

We would like to thank our sponsors and supporters for their understanding and support during this challenging time for us all, and we are already looking forward to 23 and and 24 July 2022.

Please contact for further information or if you have any questions.
