Inspired by the late Revd John Ratings, vicar of St Mary’s Church, the festival was first held in the summer of 1975 and has been a major feature of village life since. From relatively modest beginnings, it has grown to offer a staggering array of events and now extends to over 35 events held over three weeks in June. Events are held in locations across the village, with many centred around Mill Green.

The 2024 theme is 'Gold Fever', chosen to mark the festival's 50th anniversary which falls next year. There will be a golden line-up of events where you can expect all that glitters is most certainly gold!

The 19-day long festival will feature a host of fun-filled family delights, dazzling formal events, spirited theatre and musical performances, roving culinary delights, a sporting extravaganza, a wonderfully riotous Variety Show, as well as the traditional Wargrave Festival Parade through the historic village, celebrating all that makes up this splendid community.

The Festival is a not-for-profit event where every penny raised goes to community organisations improving the quality of life in the village through education, sport and culture.
