Rowntree Park's Birthday Party 2017. A free family fun-day providing music, entertainment, community stalls, street food vans and much more.

York Delivery stage

pledged of £2,254

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Building on the success of 2016's Rowntree Park Birthday Party, The Friends of Rowntree Park would like to this year's party to be bigger, better and more fun for everyone. The party this year is taking place on 16th July and runs from 1pm to 4pm. There will be live entertainment featuring the best local talent, street food, sports and wellbeing activities, arts and crafts, and over 60 community stalls. There will be plenty to entertain children with a miniature railway, bouncy castle, face painting, zorbs, balance bike track, mini golf and much more.

What we'll deliver:

  • A great day of FREE fun entertainment for all the family
  • Promotion of local talent and opportunities for local people to join in and volunteer
  • Promotion of our wonderful park and the efforts of The Friends of Rowntree Park
  • Support of community organisations that support our local community

Why it's a great idea:

Rowntree Park was donated to the City of York by the Rowntree Family in memory of those employees that died in World War I. We celebrate this anniversary by arranging a family fun day promoting the local community and showcasing the park. Last year we were overwhelmed with the number of people that joined us to celebrate, and so this year we would like to hire additional equipment, provide more entertainment, ensure there are enough food providers to satisfy everyone and make sure everyone is safe. We hope you can help us reach our goal, and ensure another memorable Rowntree Park Party

Steps to get it done:

  • Book stallholders, activity providers, musicians, etc.
  • 16th July – celebrate Rowntree Park's Birthday.
  • Complete bookings of third party vendors (portaloos, bird show etc.).
  • Complete graphic design and commence promotions.
  • Receive party funding.
