Droitwich Spa Salt Festival 2018

The annual Salt Festival is back for 2018!

The Droitwich Spa Salt Fest started back in 2006 to celebrate the town’s unique salt heritage. Over the years the event has dramatically grown, now taking place across the whole town centre and attracting thousands of visitors each year.

Whilst the salt heritage and Romans are still important aspects of the festival, the event has now taken centre stage to become a showcase for the town, local businesses and the community. Many local groups take part in the festival by running stalls and fun activities, whilst live music features young and up and coming local performers. For a full list of activities, see below:

  • Roman and Living History Re-enactment
  • Salt Museum – Heritage and Tourist Information Centre
  • Activity Zone
  • Dog Show
  • Food and drink
  • Children’s Activities
  • Duck Race
  • Churches
  • Entertainment
  • Canal Boat Trips
  • Stalls and Activities
  • Real Ale Bar

The Salt Fest really is a great day out for the whole family with lots of entertainment and activities to keep everyone entertained for hours! This year’s event will take place on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September, so be sure to put the dates in your diaries!

Listen out for the St. Augustine’s Church bells as they ring to welcome you to Salt Fest at 10am, before the grand opening begins at 10:30am. A full list of activities and timings can be found on the official Salt Festival website here.
