Olliefest started as a small local music festival "Smilefest" back in 2015, based in the market town of Ross-On-Wye held in the beautiful setting of the towns rugby fields right next to the river Wye. Entering into its 5th year, Olliefest is a firm favourite with locals and music lovers in the wider community.
Founded back in 2015 (as Smilefest) it was a celebration of life following the tragic loss of much loved local rugby player Ollie Floyd, Olliefest is a growing favourite and a must for your calendars, this years festival will be held August Bank holiday starting on Friday 23rd and coming to a close with our much loved fireworks display Sunday 25th.
With the increasing costs of running the non-profit festival we are looking to you for support and want to make it a record breaking year for both us and for our charity partners. Creating a large footfall at the festival generates more towards our chosen charity "In their shoes" who aim to provide a mental health outreach for children aged between 0-16.
As the festival is Free to enter we rely on YOU, the people to help us through donations along with our sponsors, on the back of a successful 2018 festival we want to keep this amazing local festival vibrant and alive.
Any donation no matter how small will help make a difference and you will forever be a member of the Olliefest family.
Thank you for your support as always
