Hereford River Carnival [Rescheduled: 4-5 Sep] back to all events

The River Carnival as it is today revived an old tradition dating back to the 1960s. Prior to 2014 when a team of volunteers brought it back, the last River Carnival in Hereford took place in 1973.

Hereford is the only city on the River Wye – the fifth-longest river in the UK, stretching some 215 kilometres (134 miles) from source to sea. It is the only river in Europe to be designated a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) for its entire length. It was voted Britain’s favourite river in a poll conducted by the Our Rivers campaign.
