Upcoming Festivals in Derbyshire
Posted by Cathy at 10:38
I love the summer months, for me it is all about spending precious time with family and what is more fun than visiting some of the great festivals around Derbyshire. For us the closest and perhaps one of the better known ones is Y Not Festival, this year featuring acts such as Snoop Dog and Johnny Mar. Y Not Festival is only 3 miles from where I live and is being held this weekend from the 31st July until 2nd August. Family friendly camping is available and there is lots to do.
We have visited Bakewell Show on many occasions and experienced a great day out. This year the show is on the 5th and 6th August and whilst this is not really a festival as such it is a great day for families. There is lots of entertainment, artisan food, crafts and horticultural displays, animals and even a jousting display this year.
On the 8th August Chesterfield will be showcasing local bands, artists and creative organisations at Chesterfest which is held in Queens Park at Chesterfield and entry is free. We will definitely be visiting this year as I heard so many good reports from last year's event.
Do you attend festivals with children?
