The biggest party in Abingdon-on-Thames 5th June next year possibly. A decision will be announced in Spring.
On the first Saturday in June the Abbey Gardens normally fills up with rides, face painting, live music and dance, some great street food stalls, bouncy inflatables and many more free activities. There is the opportunity for local societies and community groups to have a stall at the event and to let everyone know about their activities and the work they do. Some groups potentially sign up new members. There is the opportunity to apply in advance to perform music or dance on the stage. Fun in the Park takes place from 10:30 am to 3.00 pm and is a free, walk-in event.
Music in the Park is an evening event on the same day. This is wristband entry with sales on line and over the counter from early May all month. There is space for picnics and for dancing on the grass. Live bands and a proms style concert and fireworks make the end of evening very special.
