Ribchester Field Day

Ribchester plays host to regular events as part of its annual festivities calendar. The community also organises other one-off events to celebrate, fundraise or improve our village.

Field Day [ Saturday 17th June]

The highlight of the Village's annual calendar and an event that is enjoyed by the whole village. Ribchester Field Day incorporates a parade along Blackburn Road and Water Street - with decorated floats, fancy dress and much more including, of course, the Field Day Queen and her retinue. The parade ends with an afternoon of celebration and fun on the Playing Field.
