Fun, Fairs and Festivals

“Bring back the Water Carnival” has been a regular plea by local residents, and no wonder! It was a marvellous spectacle involving the entire community. Knaresborough has had more than its fair share of festivals over the years and by exploring newspapers, archives, and conducting local interviews, we hope to showcase 150 years of fun, games and frolics in the town.

KMA’s volunteers are busy helping us research the fun side of life in Knaresborough; how the town celebrated special events and annual festivals.
