The Brentford Festival is one of the major
community events in West London, taking place on the first Sunday in September each year from 12 noon. From the first Festival,
held in 2005, numbers of attendees have grown from an estimated 3,000 to 10,000. Entry is free to members of the public.
Previously held in Boston Manor Park but this year in Blondin Park, the event falls on the border between the London Borough of Hounslow and the London Borough of
Ealing and is supported and opened by the Mayors of both Boroughs each year. Aimed at all age, social,
religious and secular groups, the Brentford Festival provides a great day out for the residents of the surrounding Boroughs
and visitors to West London.
Entertainment is provided by musicians, dancers, dog show, traditional children’s fair, inflatable slides, land train, urban
farm and other activities, such as, climbing wall and quad bikes. The exact content and mix varies from year to year. Visit
