The summer is well and truly underway and the weather is putting smiles on the faces of all event organisers, not least those in Wiltshire. The county is playing host to many festivals, events and happenings throughout the summer. If you are heading that way over the next few weeks, check out some of the seasonal festivities below. The ancient market town of Malmesbury has long been associated with carnival time, hosting this most popular event for more than 90 years. Food, fun and entertainment abound! It’s held until 6th September. Similarly, Devizes International Street Festival and Carnival spans two weeks over August and September with events including Picnic in the Park, the Confetti Battle and Devizes International Street Festival. And don’t miss out on the Summer Spectacular Salisbury Fete on 22nd August which promises not only funfairs, food and drink, but hot air balloons and a tribute to Queen. Free for all the family, it is always eagerly anticipated. In fact, it may be a good idea to book an extra couple of weeks holiday in Salisbury as the town is hosting Salisbury Food and Drink Festival, – “an annual week of foodie events, family fun and gastronomical discoveries”. This event runs from 11 Sept to 13 Sept. For those who embrace our history, meander through the ‘Magna Flora’ Flower Festival in Salisbury, where over 500 flower arrangers will create “a feast for the senses with the smell and sight of many thousands of blooms in arrangements inspired by Magna Carta”. This event runs from 15 Sept to 20 Sept.
