202309 palmers green festival revised version

As of now (Wednesday evening) the weather forecast for Sunday afternoon couldn't be better: 22 degrees and dry, with a mix of sun and cloud and a light wind. A perfect day for holding a Festival in a park.

So what delights await us at the first Palmers Green Festival since 2019?

The various groups and individuals involved in setting up the Festival have been working hard to ensure that there'll be plenty to entertain, whatever your age, and plenty to eat and drink, but also you'll have a chance to find out about what some of the borough's many voluntary and civic sector groups are up to. See the list below.

Around the bandstand and at other locations across the park, registered charity Cooking Champions will hold the food village. The perfect place to enjoy some hot food to eat at the festival or mouth-watering produce to take home or give as gifts.

Lots of drink options, live music and competitions as well - all while raising money for our essential local food support.
