UPDATE: DUE TO THE PANDEMIC, THE FESTIVAL IS POSTPONED UNTIL SEPT/OCT 2020.
The Festival is still planned to take place, but later on this year once the pandemic is under control. We will be contacting all parties shortly to rework arragements.
The South Norwood Community Festival is back for it's 9th year; BIGGER and BETTER!
The fun family festival is returning, but later on in the summer than usual. The festival will once again feature a fantastic range of international food, craft stalls and musical attractions located in South Norwood’s Recreation Ground on Cargreen Road, which is just around the corner from Station Road and Norwood Junction station (and one stop from both East and West Croydon Stations).
Our main music stage will be hosted by amazing local bands, radio DJs and for the first year ever; comperes! The dynamic and diverse line up this year is being booked as you read this and you will of course be able to enjoy bands like the Croydon Youth Jazz Band and the Far Isles Medieval Society who always bring some medieval joy. We are also so pleased to announce that our festival has now been extended until 8pm.
For the children, the ever-popular Fun Zone will return once again, with all new rides and bouncy castles and many surprises.
For the grown-ups, there will be a beer tent serving real ale, cider, lager, wine, cocktails and other refreshing beverages available from 12-6:30pm.
But the fun doesn’t stop there! The South Norwood Community Festival has its regular acoustic session, the day before the big party in the park, date to be announced shortly.
The Festival will raise funds for Wheels for Wellbeing, a charity helping people with disabilities enjoy and ride bicycles, and the St Christopher’s, a hospice which aims to provide charitable and sensitive palliative care for those in need.
This festival is for EVERYONE, it's free, it's friendly, 10 minutes from Central Croydon and it's 100% volunteer run!
Please Note: Dogs, Alcohol and Glass Bottles are NOT permitted inside the main park. We have a licensed beer tent and area. Further information is available on our FAQ's page
