Axe Vale Festival

Axe Vale Festival is a fantastic annual event that celebrates the local area, raises money for local causes and provides a great family day out for all visitors. Originally started to raise money to help build a local swimming pool, the first festival celebrated gardening and crafts and welcomed 1000 people through its gates. Today the festival has widened its appeal to include food, antiques, trade stands, skilled demonstrators, toys & hobbies, live music, and entertainment as well as retaining its strong links to horticulture, gardening and crafts.

Today, many thousands of people visit the show each year which is still run and organised by volunteers. To date over £300,000 has been donated by the Festival to local good causes to benefit the community. We are looking forward to this year’s show and hope you come along.
