Celebrating our Shire at the Northampton Town Festival

Come along and celebrate our Shire this summer at the Northampton Town Festival! This wonderful event is created to keep you entertained all weekend, so, whether you live locally or further out, our fun-filled event is for you.

We’ve taken the best from the iconic Old Northampton Town Show and The Balloon Festival to bring entertainment, food stalls and bars, live music, giant funfair, fireworks, and of course balloons, all in one place for an action packed weekend that’s ideal for the whole family.

FREE to attend, the Northampton Town Festival will take place across two arenas on the Racecourse – a venue large enough to accommodate the crowds that the festival will attract. And with an estimated 40,000- 60,000 attending throughout the weekend, the Northampton Town Festival is the perfect place to showcase your business or talent, so  If you would like to participate in performing, sponsoring or exhibiting at this event… get in touch!
