Somerfest 2017 Somerset’s Midsummers Festival is on Saturday 17th June in the centre of Taunton. The festival attracted an estimated additional 16,ooo visitors into the town last year. Each year, the numbers have grown with Arts Council and Taunton Deane funding and is now one of the main open air events in the County.

This year we are inviting national companies and groups to perform alongside the rich array of local and regional musicians, performers  and artists that make this such a vibrant day out.

We  know from feedback that the audiences appreciate both the range of activities on hand and the opportunity to enjoy the wide range of food vendors, beverages, designers, arts and crafts, charity and promotion stalls.
