The River Festival is back after a pause of a few years and we are planning a day all the family can enjoy.  The River Festival started 40 years ago and people of all ages in Maidstone have great affection for what was the county town’s biggest annual event.

We’ll have dressed up boats, raft races, fun and games for all the family.  There will be illuminated boats in the evening and it will all end with a big bang as an award-winning fireworks display will go off from the top of Fremlin Walk in the town centre.

We would also like to give a special thanks to the Maidstone River Festival committee members, who without all their hard work the festival would not be possible.
