"Curiouser and curiouser…

the festival just keeps getting bigger and bigger."

Last year’s award winning festival had a whopping 180 market stalls and this year promises to be even bigger and better with 220 spread across the town centre.

You’ll be spoilt for choice on what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner so drop by and sample food and drink from the four corners of the globe in our fantastic markets.

When you’ve had your fill don’t forget to check out the arts and crafts stalls for some unique gifts or drop in to the Arts Circle exhibition space on Newport Street (near to Bolton’s New Transport Interchange) for some fantastic art created by local artists.

A full list of traders is listed below.  And, don’t forget, to help plan your day you can grab a copy of the festival site map from one of our information points.
