Event: Yate Community Festival

Post code: BS37 4EP

Venue: Kingsgate Park, Yate.

Date: 25/06/2022 From: 11:00 AM Description

YATE Rocks, the annual community festival in Kingsgate Park is returning to the town for its 14th year.
The free event takes place over both days of a June weekend, with money raised going to the Mayor’s chosen charities.
Robert Goodwin, who coordinates the event with Yate Town Council, said: “The festival was originally set up to promote Kingsgate Park, which is a beautiful park with various community and children’s play area facilities but wasn’t being used or visited by numbers of local residents.
“So, it was very much set up to promote the park but also to bring the community together in a fun and entertaining environment.
“It is now a significant local event and the Saturday, the main day, has grown from an initial 750-1,000 people at the first festival to over 4,000 people attending throughout the day.”
This year’s festival takes place on June 22 and 23. On the Saturday, there will be music from local bands and local dance groups, schools and associations, which also gives them the opportunity to promote themselves.
The band line up features Twinners, Limited Edition, Dockside, Beacon Rise, Liquor & Poker, Underground Frets, Vamp and Set In Stone.
Local dance groups include Glitterbugs, 5678 Dance, Stagecoach, Yate Star Twirlers, Street Cred and many others.
There are also plenty of other activities, from trampolines and giant inflatables to go-karts and a strolling magician.
Yate Air Training Corps is offering the chance to have a go in a flight simulator, and Yate fire station will send a fire engine – emergencies permitting.
