Over 10,000 people set to descend on Duke Street Park this weekend for the Formby Festival


The Formby Festival is back this weekend and Organisers of the festival are expecting to attract a footfall of around 10,000 people to Duke Street Park.


Formby festival is more than just a festival. It brings food, drink, live music and entertainment over 3 days -


Friday 20th - 5pm to 11pm

Saturday 21st July - 11am to 11pm

Sunday 22nd July - 11am to 6pm

Formby Festival was born in 2013, since then it has grown into a pinnacle part of Formby’s summer calendar. Each year families from across the North West travel to take in the delights we have to offer! From our countless world food and drink stalls to the thriving main stage and even the specialist children’s entertainment we have there truly is something for everyone to enjoy!


Formby Festival was set up to try and recreate the old Formby Show that was a highlight across the country many years ago. We set out to create a new event with a twist which could incorporate food, drink and music and last for a weekend offering something for all ages. It has since grown over the past few years and is firmly set on the calendar as the third weekend in July. Over 10,000 people attend this event and it is growing each year.


With cuisines and delights from across the globe there's something to satisfy each person's taste. Italian? Thai? Indian? Real ales, fine wines and everything in between. Whatever quenches your thirst we've got it!

Are you an artisan enthusiast? With home-made gifts, specialist snacks and much more you won't be disappointed! We have chef demos throughout the Saturday and Sunday with our resident celebrity BBC Fusion Chef of the Year; Aazam Ahmed with guest chefs as well.

Our main stage is jam packed with the finest talent the UK has to offer. From Friday night right through to Sunday evening you'll hear local bands, choral groups and even see performances from TV stars!

We've got things to keep the little ones busy too! Inflatable’s, archery, climbing wall, water bumper boats, paint balling, archery, the cave, rodeo bull, steam train, donkey rides to name but a few. We even have free activities for the kids to include kids cooking zone, magic shows, balloon modelling, circus school and a craft marquee (all free). Why not watch the dog display team or other displays in the arena. You can even enter our bake off completion. You'll find it all here.

Every year we aim to make Formby Festival even better than the last.
