A group of Folkestone residents and business folk, all volunteers, will again bring together a summer programme of events during 2024. The Folkestone Festivals committee presents an ambitious and exciting event schedule extending from June to September… all fun, all for the family and all free!

There are major events organised for weekends during the Summer months and some mid-week events… some well established and some new ones. The main events will be held at various points throughout Folkestone including the Leas, the Bandstand and the Stade.

The  Folkestone Festival group are all enthusiastic, committed, hard-working, volunteers who give many hours of unpaid time each week.  Folkestone Town Council, Folkestone & Hythe District Council, Kent County Council, District and Town Councillors’ grants, various funding bodies, businesses and individuals all support our work in different ways to ensure we produce a variety of events to be enjoyed by all.

If you would like to volunteer at one of the events, or would like to be considered as a member of the committee please contact Chairman John Packham via our contact us page who will be happy to hear from you.
