Somerfest 2020 cancelled

01 April 2020 : Council news, Art and culture, Community

Somerset West and Taunton Council regrets to announce that Somerfest will not take place this year.

This much loved, annual celebration of Somerset’s culture and diversity was due to take place on Saturday 13 June but has been cancelled in line with Government advice.

Councillor Marcus Kravis, Executive Member for Economic Development, said: “Whilst this is an incredibly popular event in Taunton which brings in a large number of people every year, it would not be prudent to carry on with our plans during this time of great uncertainty. Our priority is the health and safety of all those involved.

After seven years of Somerfest taking place in the heart of Taunton, SWT will look to return Somerfest to the annual event calendar in 2021, bigger and better than ever.”
