Hereford River Carnival 2023

The Hereford River Carnival and the Hereford Indie Food Festival were both held over the recent August Bank Holiday weekend (26th - 28th August 2023). Lots of stalls, food and music to suit everyone's taste.

We popped over to the River Carnival on Friday night (25th) to see the lighted floats ...

All in all, an impressive display of creativity and rivercraft.

While the River Carnival was geared more towards families and the older generation, the Indie Food Festival was definitely targetted at the Millenial and the early Gen Z groups. Plenty of food and drink with music and DJ sets to keep them fed, watered, and entertained. We popped in on the Monday afternoon and it was certainly lively.

A great weekend in Hereford with something for everyone.
