The organisers of 3foot People Festival have announced the 2017 dates when the award winning event will return to Chelmsford.

3foot People Festival dates

The popular event for pre-school children and their parents will be once again held at Hylands Park in Chelmsford and will take place between 27-29 June 2017.

Every years the festival welcomes over 14,000 big and small visitors to the Hylands estate. The village-style experience always features a huge variety of activities and performances geared specifically towards under 5s.

Now back for its twelth year, 3foot People Festival tickets is one of the most highly regarded children’s events in the whole of Essex. Tickets to the festival weekend sell out well in advance, with late-comers often left disappointed.

While some visitors last year felt that the festival has become a victim of its own success – the long queues to get in are felt to be a low point – the majority have a fabulous day out.
