Held at King George V playing fields, the largest free event of its kind in Hertfordshire, Stevenage Day 2022 will be bigger and better than ever on Sunday 12th June.
Attracting 30,000 people in 2019, the theme for this year’s event is “Re-imagining Stevenage Day” which will focus on the arts and culture in our community, as well as Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee and the Commonwealth Games. There will be over 200 stalls dedicated to charities, voluntary organisations and local businesses, and you can expect lots of fun activities including storytelling, a crafts tent, an interactive zone for local artists to offer creative workshops and promote their work, a world music programme, a performance area and the twin stages for “Rock in the Park”.
“Excitement is building ahead of this year’s Stevenage Day, all the more so as this is our first as a town since 2019. It’s a great opportunity for local people to come together and have fun. This year’s event will also give a significant boost to our local charities now they can benefit from face to face contact with people once more after the last two difficult years of the pandemic”.
Councillor Sandra Barr, Mayor of Stevenage
