FollyFest is Faringdon’s annual music and community arts festival, providing the drumbeat to our town’s quirky year.
FollyFest 2021 – Updated Monday 14 June 2021
It is unfortunate and with regret that we have today announced the cancellation of Follyfest 2021.
Due to the nature of FollyFest as a non-ticketed, free-to-enter event, located in the centre of the town, the extension of Covid restrictions means it is not possible for us to ensure adequate crowd management with these measures still in place.
We as the organising committee recognise all the hard work and planning that has gone into putting on FollyFest for this year. We appreciate the commitment given from bands, stall holders, local businesses, and other volunteers, but it is not possible for us to fulfil our responsibility of ensuring compliance to the ongoing rules.
Whilst we know this will be a disappointment to many we will now begin our planning for next year and remain determined to make Follyfest 2022 the biggest and best of all. We will be back next year, with an absolute banger of a festival.
One town. Two music stages. Three days of fringe events … with a good dose of arts, crafts, local businesses, fun & games thrown in. Traffic grinds to a halt, food and drink flows – bring on the weekend!
