Only Days to Go to a Great Weekend

It's been a long time since the last Melksham Food and River Festival and we can't wait to get back in the Park and welcome all of you to this year's event.

Around the Park, we've got a great variety of stalls for you to browse throughout the whole weekend whether it's sampling artisan foods or catching up with what's happening in local community groups and services.

For our younger visitors we have a Children's Fairground, Climbing Wall and a Zip-Wire across the river plus our ever popular Face-Painter. On Sunday children can enjoy Pony Rides with our old friend Frankie the canal horse.

On the River, you'll be able to take a relaxing boat trip with the Wilts and Berks Canal Trust, watch the Raft Race on Saturday plus demonstrations by the Wiltshire Search and Rescue team as well as Wiltshire Youth Canoe Club and Phoenix Paddlesport group showing off their skills on the water. You'll even have the opportunity to try stand-up paddle-boarding yourself; don't forget to bring a change of clothing if you plan to have a go.

Check out our website pages to plan your trip to the Festival over the weekend of the 4th and 5th September.

We're looking forward to seeing you there.

Best Regards

MFRF Committee
