FoxFestival 20th & 21st June 2020
A fun family day out with something for all ages.
Welcome to Fox Festival ! We are an exciting new event with a long history. For ten years we acted as fundraiser for the Foxton Inclined Plane Trust and also as a vehicle to promote the Trust and raise peoples awareness of its aims.
We felt the time had come to move onto a slightly different direction, we have left the Trust in good financial health, but with different goals, which we hope they can achieve,and we wish them the very best of luck with all their future ventures.
It became apparent that we had outgrown the site that we had used for the past ten years, and had been looking for an alternative for sometime, this was further compounded by the unsuitability of the site during the wet weather.
So we are happy to have found a new home at the County Showground in Market Harborough, It gives us greater space to present bigger Arena attractions, we will have room to create an actual craft village and a bigger more diverse food court, as well as two stages of live music. The other bonus , is all parking, camping, caravaning is on site , so no long walks back to your vehicle or tent , or motor home !
We are sad that because of the move we lose our association with the canal and numerous boaters that used to bring so much every year. However our new home is only a stone’s throw from Foxton Locks (5 mins by car) so you could combine the two in one visit.
However we hope to make for a more complete family festival with much more of a selection of things to see and do at a very competitive admission price. We aim to encourage local businesses to the festival as well as local musicians and performers where ever possible
We are running the festival as a not for profit, so any proceeds will be shared amongst local charities and good causes, we would also stress that we are not in competition to the County Show or Harborough at War, two brilliant festivals that take place on the site at different times, but to offer an alternative earlier on during the festival season.
We are situated just outside Market Harborough town centre at the Showground, Leicester Road, Market Harborough LE16 7QX.
The Arriva X3 bus runs every 30 mins to just outside the site and the Centrebus 44 passes the Gallowfield Road entrance hourly on Saturday.
Festival entry is only £8 for adults with accompanied children under 16 free
