Hereford River Carnival is a fabulous celebration of the Wye, voted the UK’s favourite river in a poll conducted by the Our Rivers campaign. Hereford is the only city on the River Wye – the fifth-longest river in the UK, stretching some 215 kilometres (134 miles) from source to sea. It is the only river in Europe to be designated a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) for its entire length.
Over 12,000 people joined in the festivities in 2016 and so many people from across the community got involved and had such a great time that Visit Herefordshire awarded the Carnival the coveted Best Community Festival Award for 2016.</p>
The Carnival is on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th April in 2017. The committee required a new, more easily accessible and vibrant website to aid planning, engage the public, and promote the event in the run up.
We are pleased not only to design but to update the site on a daily basis and have integrated various social media feeds and an e-mail newsletter.
