Saturday 18 November, 2:00pm – 6:00pm – Watford Town Centre
🎅 Christmas is coming to Watford Town Centre!
❄️ We are hosting a wonderful FREE event to begin the festive season including funfair rides, festive activities, food & drink stalls, a high street parade and live music performers on Saturday 18 November from 2:00pm – 6:00pm.
Winterfest will mainly be taking place on The Parade, which will be filled with activities suited for all ages, a community feel and a fun Christmas vibe. The funfair rides will include a rodeo reindeer, penguin skittles, a giant snow globe, test of strength and much more. As well as an extended Watford market, we will also have additional food, drink and community stalls, and some special live performances.
One of the main features of the day will be the Winterfest parade, which will begin at 4pm outside of Metro Bank and McDonald’s on the lower high street. The festive parade will include a marching band, costume characters, local community groups and SANTA CLAUS HIMSELF! The Winterfest parade will last around 30 minutes and will move all the way up to the pond area on The Parade.
As well as organising Winterfest, Watford Town Centre BID will once again be funding the town’s stunning LED Christmas light installations for the fifth year running, with thanks to a contribution from Watford Borough Council. The festive LED twinkly lights provide a wonderful backdrop for all Watford Town Centre users, and they will complement Atria Watford’s beautiful new displays. The town’s festive installations will light up Winterfest at the conclusion of the Winterfest parade and remain lit until January 2024.
Watford Town Centre BID are delighted to once again be delivering a festive event to mark the beginning of a busy Christmas period. Huge credit goes to our BID businesses for funding another thrilling and dynamic event in our town for the benefit of residents and visitors.
