Shropshire festivals and Events: celebrate with us

All year round you’ll find Shropshire festivals celebrating things that make our county special – from apples to cider to coracles and comics and on through the alphabet to walking festivals. We even have a late-summer festival that fills the sky with hot air balloons: Oswestry Balloon Carnival is a sight to behold. Shropshire is home to the country’s first food festival. Ludlow Food Festival. Now it’s world famous and many of Shropshire’s towns have followed with their own versions. In mid-August, Quarry Park in Shrewsbury blooms with the equally revered Shrewsbury Flower Show. Two days of music, food and dazzling floral displays each culminate in a fireworks finale, followed at the end of August by one of the world’s best folk festivals. Ensuring adults don’t steal all the fun, Shropshire Kids Fest in the spring brings two days of (meticulously organised) mayhem. Some Shropshire festivals are rooted in folklore. On May Day people gather in Clun to watch the Green Man battle the Ice Queen on the packhorse bridge. Which Shropshire festival will you visit this year?
