PETERSFIELD SPRING FESTIVAL
SPRING BANK HOLIDAY | SAT 27th - MON 29th MAY
SAT 7 - 10pm | SUN 10am - 10pm | MON 10am - 6pm
We can't wait to bring you the first Petersfield Spring Festival organised as Petersfield Community Events for 2023.
The Petersfield Spring Festival will be awesome, as you have to come to expect in previous years, but with added excitement and love for enjoying a drink and a dance with your loved ones, browsing the quality stalls for a special gift or treat, letting the children have a ride on a vintage dobbie horse, sitting in the sun and chilling for the afternoon listening to awesome music, admiring the vehicles from days gone by.
We are so excited this year for all the awesome things we have coming up and we will start announcing them very soon. The first is already below with the return of the Classic and Electric Car Show, so get signing up today.
WE WILL ADD MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE RANGE OF ATTRACTIONS AND LIVE MUSIC LINE UP IN THE COMING MONTHS, BUT MARK THE DATE IN THE DIARY... IT'S GOING TO BE AWESOME!
Saturday 27th May | 7pm-10pm
Sunday 28th May | 10am-10pm
Monday 29th May | 10am-6pm
Petersfield Town Centre
In the meantime, please stay safe and we will see you all soon.

Join in again and display your classic or electric vehicle at the Festival...
After such an awesome response last year and with so many requests to have another car display, we are going to have another for you to join in the festival and bring your awesome vehicles along.
We have reserved space in the centre of town for a whole host of cars and vehicles to join in and be part of the fun on
Monday 29th May from 10am - 4pm.
WE ARE VERY HAPPY TO SAY WE HAVE HAD SUCH A HUGE RESPONSE AGAIN THIS YEAR AND WE HAVE CLOSED REGISTRATION AS WE HAVE OUR ALLOCATED 50 VEHICLES TO DISPLAY.
We are so excited to see you all on display on Monday!
The Motorcycle Display will return for the Summer Festival too, details to come.
A 1924 3 4 ½ LITRE BENTLEY WILL BE WITH US ON MONDAY AS PART OF THE DISPLAY
This 1924 3 4 ½ Litre Bentley has an interesting history from her rebirth in Scotland in the 1960’s as a car representing the racing style of the vintage TT period.
Mechanically rebuilt by the team at Vintage Bentley, today she maintains the patina of regular use, with excellent hydraulic brakes, coil ignition via twin magnetos, and a bespoke two-seater body. This Bentley runs very well and stops equally as quickly – a very useful combination for a competitive car!
XU2472 is the first Bentley in history to secure race wins powered by synthetic fuel, a great testament to confirm this car is a fast, useable vintage Bentley which is an absolute joy to drive.
