Dates for the 2017 festival now confirmed!
We have been busy planning and working towards our relaunch in 2017 of the Crystal Palace Overground Festival and we are very excited to announce that our main park event will now be in Crystal Palace Park on 17 June 2017, with our community fringe festival events taking place across 12 – 18 June 2017.
And don’t forget that our events are mainly FREE! particularly the park event as we invite everyone to the party!
We cannot wait to welcome you all to Crystal Palace Park on 17 June 2017 and can reveal now that the festival site will be much bigger than the Westow Park site allowing us to create even more festival fun for you all! We love Westow Park but we have simply outgrown it – our little community event we started back in 2006 has grown to attract over 6,000 visitors from all over south London!
As always we are really looking forward to working with our local traders, pubs, venues, artists, churches and community groups to help them create a whole week of festivities across Crystal Palace.
Watch this space for more festival news coming soon!
You can Gift Aid a donation to the festival as by the magic of the Local Giving Foundation, we will receive that funding despite not being a charity yet – we are applying for charitable status so watch this space.
Volunteering makes you happy
Thank you so much to our volunteers who make it happen!
The festival is almost entirely volunteer run and led and is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with a fun, creative event, meet new people and give something back to your community. Our volunteers tell us that the best thing about being part of the team is that they get to meet their neighbours and feel part of a special event. Thank you to all of our volunteers for the past 5 years – you are the heart and soul of this festival!!! Please click here to find out more about volunteering to help deliver the 2017 festival.
