The Stow Cotswold Festival runs every other year on the third Saturday in July in the lovely Cotswold market town of Stow-on-the-Wold. Its aim is to promote Stow and celebrate traditional Cotswold life, crafts and heritage. The next festival will be held in 2025 in the Square.

Past Festivals have given visitors a warm welcome as townspeople pull out all the stops to celebrate their community’s colourful past and what has made it into one of today’s worldwide tourist destinations.

The one-day event showcases local crafts, produce and skills, alongside a packed programme of free entertainment for all the family, culminating in an evening of live music.

The Festival’s proceeds are donated to three local charities.

We have a brand new committee who will be planning an exciting re-launch in 2025. We’re always happy to welcome new committee members or helpers and suggestions or ideas on what could be included - get in touch via our Facebook page or email
