They’ve supported the Buzzcocks, Happy Mondays, Toploader & McFly and recently headlined the famous Dublin Castle in Camden. The band are now chatting with Dave Robinson, founder of Stiff Records and former President of Island. Don’t miss them.

Park Fest 2015 is their 6th festival, hard to believe! Since its invention in 2010 it has become one of Stranraer’s most popular annual live music and entertainment events.

It is an event created to not only raise funds for the RNLI but to raise the profile of the Stranraer Lifeboat, give our community an event that could involve all, of all ages, and we hope this has been achieved.

Park Fest is run solely by volunteers – the RNLI’s Stranraer fund raising branch (Park Fest Team), the Stranraer Station and Lifeboat Crew. Our heartfelt thanks goes to all who have helped in any way whatsoever, whether it be by donating, sponsoring, giving their time and skills or providing a service and equipment – but of course, mostly YOU, who come along spend your money.


 For the Third year running DGWGO are proud to be the Official online media partner with Parkfest .
