The dates you've all been waiting for!

We're really please to announce that MONMOUTH FESTIVAL 2017 will take place from 


Initially it looked very unlikely that we would be able to stage the Festival in 2017. The 2016 Festival was extremely successful enjoying some of the best weather for some time. Surprisingly, however, donations this year were the lowest for a number of years resulting in a £5k deficit.

Thankfully a local business has offered to underwrite the early contracts, making sure that we can continue to trade and Year 35 is now very much underway.

Monmouth Festival is one of Europe’s LONGEST RUNNING and LARGEST FREE FESTIVALS and the Festival committee is determined to ensure its continued development and success.

The festival gets a small amount of grant funding but without the support of sponsors, advertisers, traders and your donations it won't keep going! It also needs plenty of volunteers to make it happen.                                                      


If so, please e-mail:
