July is just one long festival!

Do you view the word Festival in horror, picturing mud, crowds and portaloos?  Or do your thoughts turn to more pleasant things like good times spent with friends and family, hot and sunny weather, incredible live music, amazing new foods and exciting new experiences?

Hopefully your summer this year will be all about fun, laughter, enjoyment and good times and, to help you have the best summer yet, we’ve compiled a list of the many festivals being held this summer across North Nottinghamshire.


Here's July's Festivals guide.  Look out for Part 2, covering August & September, later this month (or look on the website).

And, for those who prefer smaller events, we’ve also included some of the lovely local Galas, Fetes, Shows, Fairs, Family Fun Days, Open Days, etc. which are perfect for families to enjoy.

Just click on the titles to view information about each event.

You’ll find loads more great events & things to do on the In North Notts website and new events are being added all the time. Just click on 'Events' at the top of the page to find them.

Have a fantastic July!
