Throughout the weekend there will be a funfair, bands, choirs, loads of stalls, twelve different types of catering, crazy golf, a bar and arena activities.

The East Barnet Festival is organised by the community, for the community, and remains North London’s largest free summer festival.

The event is entirely self-funded, with money being raised from sponsors, advertisers and traders. All funds are used to ensure that the can continue each year.

A percentage of any surplus funds are donated to Friends in Need, a support group based in East Barnet village to provide community activities and services.
