About the event

Derby Festé 2017 returns!

Derby Festé will arrive on 29 and 30 September, transforming Derby into a playground with performances for the whole family to enjoy.

Derby Festé kicks off on Friday night as Bass’ Recreation ground is transformed into a World of Circus with a twist of Festé and a sprinkling of magic. Head to the event page for more information and to buy tickets.

On Saturday the streets will come to life from noon with entertainers for the whole family including live music, circus performances, dance, and super heroes.

The Saturday headline act for this year starts with a parade of colour winding through the Cathedral Quarter. Then dance the night away at the spectacular Garba celebration of light, colour and rhythm.

The Colour of Time procession, by Cie Artonik, will begin at 5pm winding its way through the streets to Cathedral Green – where only the brave will enter the explosion of colour! Then don’t miss the incredible spectacle of more than 100 dancers perform the Garba under a canopy of lanterns on the Market Place. You can join in or just enjoy the wonderful Night Market!

This is a unique and special experience not to be missed. See you there!
