Aquafest, Ely’s Premier Community event, will be in it’s 41st year in 2019. It covers three premier sites along the riverside – Lavender Green, Jubilee Gardens and the Maltings Green.

Whether you are 9 or 90 Aquafest has something to offer you. A major crowd pleaser is the amazing Annual Raft Race on the River Ouse, with lots of decorated rafts – and before the main race (at around 12.45pm) local Scouts have their own race (at around 11am).

There is also the fun fair, beer tent, burger bar and stalls (charity (including Scouts), craft and a variety of business stalls).



There will also be demonstrations along the river by Hannam’s Wake Hub and the Ely Rowing Club

Meanwhile the two arenas provide varied entertainment through the day, often featuring local talent. There is music, dancing, interesting demonstrations and audience participation.

Organised by the Rotary Clubs of Ely, with main sponsors – Thorlabs, Charles Daniel, Tucker Gardner, Ward Gethin Archer, Whitings and The Ely Standard –  they are proud that they are able to provide this event FREE for ALL.
