Shackerstone Family Festival is situated close to the Leicestershire,
Warwickshire border. It offers two days of events over the weekend Saturday
31st August and Sunday 1st September.
2019 will see the 25th year this wonderful gem of an event taking
place. Each year the small, sleepy Leicestershire village of Shackerstone
springs to life with the sights and sounds of the Shackerstone Family
Festival. A unique event that includes arena entertainment, vintage cars,
