Maidenhead Festival is the biggest, regularly organised, free, public event in Maidenhead and has many benefits for our community, including building community spirit and goodwill. It helps to strengthen the charities and other organisations which take part by providing a platform for publicity, fund raising and recruitment. We also aim to generate footfall for businesses in the town by bringing more people to the centre.
Last year was one of the most successful years we’ve ever had with an increase in the number of people attending Festival and taking part in the free activities. It is estimated that between 12,000 – 15,000 people from in and around Maidenhead enjoyed the two days of entertainment in 2019.
Our budget for this year’s festival is £48,000 and we really need the support of local organisations, companies and individuals to meet our target and make sure we have a great event in our town.
Maidenhead Festival is organised by the community for the community. We have a small team of dedicated volunteers who fundraise, plan, organise and make festival happen each year, none of whom are paid. Festival is a standalone event, it is not a council-run or funded event, which is why your support is really needed and appreciated.
Supporting Maidenhead Festival provides a great opportunity for your business to reach a large local audience, not only onsite at Festival but also through our extensive online presence (we have over 1,660 followers on Facebook). Many local businesses told us that they had had a very busy Saturday and Sunday because of the extra people in the town.
