Jesmond Community Festival

The 2019 Jesmond Community Festival was the fifteenth to take place since the tradition of festivals in Jesmond was revived in 2005.

It comprised 85 events spread over 23 days, from 11 May to 2 June. Over 7,800 people attended or took part in festival events in 2019, although this total will include a lot of double counting, ie the same people attending two or more events. This success was largely the result of the huge amount of voluntary time and effort which went into the events, by performers, organisers and host organisations.
