Graze Festival is a non-profit music and food festival, raising money for local groups and charities who make up the fantastic community in and around Winchester.
Founded in 2015 by a group of volunteers, the annual festival has produced an exciting lineup of live music, performing arts, pop-up restaurants and a dedicated kids’ area over four fantastic years.
In 2019, The Graze Festival team announced a well deserved break, taking a year off to refresh creatively and personally. 2020 needs no introduction, but this year, we need your support more than ever to re-launch for 2021 and beyond.
The current roadmap from lockdown to re-opening suggests an event at the end of the summer is feasible, but far from certain. There are a number of factors which contribute to this, from the availability of artists and suppliers through to production, management, volunteer support and cash flow.
One thing we do know is that the Graze Festival community is at the very core of our existence. Quite simply, without YOU there would be no festival at all.
Pledge your support for Graze Festival and help us bring back Hampshire's finest music & food festival on Sunday 29 August at its usual location at Hazeley Fields in Twyford, near Winchester.

What happens if you don't reach your Crowdfunder target?
Quite simply this campaign is all-or-nothing. If we don't reach our funding target, all pledges are refunded and we'll have to wait until 2022 for the next instalment of Graze Festival :(
Do I need to pay extra on the day?
No! If you purchase a Crowdfunder reward which includes tickets, there is no extra purchase necessary to attend Graze Festival.
Can I buy tickets later?
If we hit our Crowdfunder target, additional tickets will be available to purchase in the lead up to the event. Of course, we encourage you to buy your tickets now via this Crowdfunder to help us reach our target!
Is Graze Festival still raising money for local groups and charities?
Yes! As a non-profit festival, any surplus is donated to local groups, charities, and a dedicated charity partner.
What happens if the festival can't take place in 2021?
In the event of a festival cancellation or postponement, all tickets, merchadise and other Crowdfunder rewards will roll over into 2022.
What happens if the UK is put into lockdown or social gatherings are restricted?
We are following all government guidance on COVID-19 safety and will communicate any changes to our event roadmap as soon as we can. If the event is cancelled, all tickets will roll over into 2022.
I have another question, who can I contact?
