SAVE THE DATE! – Bank Holiday weekend - 29th, 30th & 31st August 2020
Petersfield Summer Festival was back to full force again this year with it’s non-stop crazy hot sun filled Bank Holiday weekend from start to finish.
The sun was out, the cars were out, the stalls were out, the Empire was out and the smiles were out with young and old enjoying themselves with everything on offer.
Hometown Festivals celebrated another Great British summer this August Bank Holiday weekend and we hope you were able to join us for a while to enjoy it in Petersfield Town Centre.
For the ninth successful year the free-to-enter Petersfield Summer Festival took place on the busy streets and market square in the centre of Petersfield. It featured three days of top quality live music with the whole festival starting on the Saturday evening followed by two full days of fantastic varied market stall trading featuring some of the best food and products available from the local area as well as awesome family entertainment and activities.
Below are a selection of awesome photos from the weekend showing a few of the things on offer to enjoy and it certainly does look like you had fun.
Over the course of the weekend, we had the return of Classic cars on display during Sunday as the Petersfield Post & Herald Summer Motor Show returned as well as on the Bank Holiday Monday when the Solent Renegades (http://www.solent-renegades.co.uk) joined us to show off their awesome vehicles.
With every event we put on, we continually try and improve and grow and so if you have any ideas of anything you would like to see included. Please let us know. We already have plans for next year to include more themed characters at our events over the year.
This year, Hometown Festivals’ events in Petersfield have been very generously sponsored by the awesome Rams Walk Shopping Centre. If you haven’t been to Rams Walk, then where have you been?? It is a charming and eclectic collection of quality shops in the heart of historic Petersfield and during our events they will be putting on extra entertainment to ensure everyone has an awesome day. Make sure you check them out and visit them when you get chance…
As well as the Petersfield Summer Festival happening in the square and High Street over the weekend, go and join Rams Walk for extra fun filled family entertainment from exciting street performers.

The Force Festival returned again this year and transformed Petersfield into a Star Wars haven with over 20 characters descending on the town! The 501st Legion, Rebel Legion and the Mandalorian Mercs came to town in full Star Wars costumes for you to see and interact with as well as a few other characters from Reel Icons and local cosplay groups.
With your generosity from giving donations when having your photograph taken, we helped raise over £350 for the Petersfield Ladies Circle who will distribute the money to a local children’s hospital ward.
We would also like to thank our other generous local sponsors, who without them, there would be no Petersfield Festivals for everyone to enjoy for free and so please remember to support local and visit them as often as you can.
As already mentioned, we have plans to bring new items to our awesome hometown next year and so we hope you will continue to support us.
See you in 2020!
