This year’s main Caldmore Village Festival will be held over the bank holiday weekend of Saturday 28th, Sunday 29th and Monday 30th May.
The Festival is to be held at Caldmore Community Primary School grounds from 12 noon until 8.30pm with entertainment carrying on into the evening at the support venues of The Wheatsheaf & The White Lion.
Background of the Festival
Caldmore Village Festival Group was set up in 2009 by a local, independent body with the aim of arranging multi-cultural community based events in the Caldmore area.
Caldmore is the home to many different cultures, as well as, many of Walsall’s artists and artisans. The festival is therefore a fantastic initiative to encourage these cultures to come together and celebrate community spirit.
This year’s Caldmore Village Festival will feature all sorts of food and entertainment, making it a fantastic day out for all the family. The main stage will feature many of Walsall’s local talented acts, including United by Bhangra- a high energy dance troupe.
There will also be a large refreshments and food marquee, A Taste Of Caldmore, featuring a fantastic variety of authentic cuisines from all around the world.
Keep the kids entertained this bank holiday as there will also be a fantastic children’s entertainment section, featuring face painting and arts workshop activities.
A Carnival Parade will also be held on the Monday afternoon so get down to the festival over the weekend to get help making your costume!
6-A-Side Football There is also still an opportunity for any teams of 11-16 years who would like to sign up for the 6-A-Side Football Event on Sunday 29th May. Click here to find out more.
