The festival, which previously featured live music from local acts through the day, ‘village show’-style stalls and even a dog show, had to be cancelled in 2020 because of the pandemic.
Organiser Paul Jenks, left, stressed that arrangements are “obviously subject to whatever Covid conditions are still in place at the time”.
“But there comes a point where you just have to go for it and hope. Otherwise you wait and wait and wait and then it’s too late to do it anyway,” he said.
As well as musical entertainment throughout the day, and community-style stalls, there are also plans to stage a veg show by Growing Places – a project that has been encouraging Bitterne Parkers to “grow some food together” this year.
TriFest is being planned for the afternoon of Saturday, August 14, running from 12.30pm – 7pm.
To get things moving Paul Jenks said he’d like to hear from:
- people who would like to play, or coordinate, music for free
- local traders, community groups, charities etc who would like a pitch
- people who would like to help run the event, such as putting up and taking down tents and clearing litter
