About the Festival
It all started back in the early '80s with a wheelbarrow full of baked spuds being sold around the town whilst the shops stayed open late to catch any last minute Christmas shoppers. Move the clocks forward over thirty years and what is now known as the Garstang Victorian Christmas Festival is a huge community event attracting local residents as well as hundreds of visitors from all around the region.
Although still a traditional Christmas Festival with a Victorian theme, more modern entertainment is also on offer along the traditional.
