Watercress Festival 2020

Watercress Festival 2020

Day out at a themed Festival

On the third Sunday of May each year, this beautiful market town of Alresford, known as the Watercress capital, becomes the site of a huge street festival. Over 80 stalls showcase the very best local food and drink producers. Others sell arts, crafts, jewellery and clothing, items for the house, garden and much else besides. At 10:00 a large cavalcade of musicians, dancers and children accompany the Watercress King and Queen up Broad Street as they distribute freshly cut bunches of watercress to festival goers. Throughout the day, musicians and street performers entertain on the main stage, in St. John’s Church and on the streets. For the young, there are circus skills workshops, face painting, Punch & Judy shows, petting farm and much more. Well-known chefs will demonstrate delicious watercress-inspired dishes. The local shops and pubs, cafes and tea rooms will mostly be open during the day.
