Festivals and Shows in Norfolk
We’re now within the realms of festival season and a mighty fine list of family friendly events will be happening over the next few months.
In Norfolk, festival season is hugely diverse. Sometimes practical and informative and sometimes quirky and eccentric – you’ll find everything here, from an eclectic mix of traditional village fetes, coastal sand-castle building or kite flying fairs, food and drink festivals, large and small agricultural shows, music festivals – the list is endless and there’s no excuse to say there’s nothing happening in the area this spring.
These fun-filled events foster a sense of community spirit and a welcome feeling of inclusiveness. Besides it’s a great excuse to get to know your neighbours a little bit better.
