Stow Cotswold Festival

Event ended

Editor's Choice

The town will be awash with red, white, and blue, when The Stow Cotswold Festival comes to town on the 4 July with an all-American theme.

Stow-on-the-Wold will be decorated with stars and stripes when it holds its American-themed annual festival on Saturday 4 July 2015, with popcorn, brownies, and hamburgers on the menu.

With a variety of entertainment and events taking place throughout the day, the festival promises fun for all the family with a host of exciting attractions including face painting, a carousel, giant snakes and ladders, a rodeo bull, treasure hunts, and fancy dress.

The festival also boats 52 market stalls selling a range of food, drink, and gifts; a display of USA vehicles offering rides to guests; a fire engine; and a grand charity tombola.

A mass sewing bee will be held at St Edwards Hall, offering visitors the chance to get involved and contribute to the community patchwork quilt; the final product will be sent to Stow’s friend across the Atlantic, USA town Appomattox.

Locals can also enjoy festivities on Friday 3 July 2015, when Brize Norton’s Military Wives Choir opens the celebrations at St Edward’s Church from 7.30pm.

Showing support for four local charities, The Stow Cotswold Festival is a worthwhile and popular yearly event.
