May Day Festival

The Burnley May Day Festival is held every year on the May Day bank holiday Monday. It has run every year since the bank holiday was established in 1978 and is held at Towneley Park.

It is preceeded by a May Day parade that currently sets off from Burnley Town Hall although various other start points have been used over the years.
