Make a day and night of it at the Castletown Festival

Monday 29th July 2019 |

Hartford Homes are delighted to once again sponsor the Castletown Festival, now in its 63rd year.

Bringing together families and friends, this popular community-led day takes place in the Island’s ancient capital on Saturday 3rd August, from 1pm ‘til late.

Organised by the town’s hardworking voluntary committee, the annual event promises a full day and night of fun and games for the whole family, with an exciting roster of attractions, entertainment and refreshments.

Along with a plethora of stalls and bouncy castles, notable highlights include the Festival Queen’s procession, Fancy Dress competition, and eye-catching floats leading into the famous Confetti Carnival – a town tradition stretching all the way back to 1910, when the first recorded event of its kind was held in support of Castletown Football Club.

Local X Factor star Sam Black and friends hit a high note later in the night with an unmissable set of live music, while a firework display in front of Castle Rushen rounds off the magical night with a suitably dazzling flourish!
