Northwich River Festival

Northwich

13th July 2019 - 14th July 2019

The Northwich Rotary Club, with the support of the River Weaver Navigation Society, is staging the second Northwich River Festival.

Building on the success of last year's event, Northwich River Festival 2019 promises to be bigger and better.

Now in its third year, the event has become a firm favourite in the town’s calendar, and sees the return of the crowd-pleasing MIGHTY River Weaver Dragon Boat Challenge, with racing the eye-catching boats between Town Bridge and The ODEON.

Chair of the organising committee, Rotarian John Walton, says, “The overall winners of the past two races has been a team from Roberts Bakery, so it will be interesting to see if anyone can take the crown from them this year. We’ve managed to keep the entry price for entry of 10 Rowers and a drummer at the 2018 cost, and we are expecting another increase in teams entered”.

There will be a change of craft for the Sunday, when participants will battle to be winners of the second “Raft the River Race”.

Teams from Mid Cheshire Scout Association will be racing on the Sunday morning, starting at 9.30 am. In the afternoon, the racing will be open to local businesses, clubs & associations to take part in their own hand-built vessels. The course will be the same as for the Dragon Boat Challenge on the Saturday, and promises to be hilarious fun for competitors and spectators alike!
