Crowds at the 2010 Festival start to arrive

Saturday 9th July 2016
11 am to 5 pm

2016 Stall Bookings are CLOSED - We are full

The 2016 Kirkstall Festival will take place on Saturday 9th July in the picturesque grounds of the 12th Century Kirkstall Abbey. The Festival is probably the largest community festival in Leeds run entirely by volunteers. Last year attracted around 25,000 people. It is not a Rock Festival, or a County Show, but an event that will entertain people of all ages with events including:
  • Fairground
  • Over 160 stalls
  • Battle of the Bands
  • Tea Dance
  • 8 performance areas
  • Comedy; Rock, Classical, Jazz, Folk and Light music
  • Food and Drink
  • Procession
  • Displays
  • Local Information
The Festival receives a small proportion of its funding from Council grants, but is mainly self-financing raising money from the stalls, food franchises, fairground and programme sales.

If you are asked to buy a programme on your way in, please do not walk past, £2 is a small amount to pay for a days entertainment!
  KVCA is a registered charity No: 507822
