There’s a lot to love about living in or visiting Windsor and its fantastic line-up of annual festivals is one of them.  Here, we take a look at some of the best festivals in the area to enjoy with family and friends throughout 2019.

Let’s Rock the Moor

This 80s music festival is great fun for all the family and takes place in May each year.  Now on its 11th year, Let’s Rock the Moor offers a great line-up of acts and welcomes the whole family to enjoy a musical day out in Cookham.

Maidenhead Festival

The second of the festivals coming our way this year is Maidenhead Festival.  Held over the weekend of 20-21st July, this free festival is touting itself as ‘THE place to be this summer’.

The best thing about this community festival is its family friendly atmosphere. There will be plenty for the kids to get up to, including side shows, stall, fairground rides and a beach to play in. For adults there’s fantastic food and drink and live music and entertainment throughout the weekend. Most of the fun takes place at Kidwells Park but events pop up all over the town.

Festival of Food and Wine at Ascot Racecourse

Come September 2019, anyone visiting Windsor can pop along to the world-famous Ascot racecourse for a racing weekend with a difference. This four-day event takes over the racecourse transforming it into a treat for the tastebuds, as well as for anyone who enjoys a great glass of wine. There will be over 100 stalls selling food from all over the globe for racegoers to enjoy. What’s not to like about that?

Windsor Festival

This autumn festival promises to be as popular as ever this year. With events taking place all over Windsor, making the most of our spectacular venues, such as Windsor Castle, the Guildhall and the Old Court Arts Centre, there should be something for everyone during event.

Events tend to take many forms, including guided tours, open houses, talks and exhibitions, with representatives from many areas of the arts coming along and sharing their thoughts, perspectives and experiences over the fortnight.

Windsor Fringe festival and the Spring Leap are both linked to the main windsor festival but take place at other times of the year.  They both offer an eclectic programme of arts events in and around the town.

Cliveden Literary Festival

The people of Windsor love Cliveden which is both a National Trust property and a country house hotel.  Once a year, at the end of September, it plays host to a popular literary festival, which prides itself on being fun and accessible, as well as appealing to hardcore literary fans from all over the country.
