Goostrey Village Attractions

Goosfest 10th Anniversary

Now in its 10th year, this week-long arts and music festival is set to be the best yet!

Goosfest is held each year in October at various venues in and round Goostrey. The festival caters for all musical tastes, whether you’re into classical, reggae, folk, jazz or contemporary, and the arts programme features everything from theatre and stand-up, to poetry, painting and crafts.

Goostrey Rose Festival

The Goostrey Rose Festival is a day set aside by the Goostrey village community for all the family to enjoy.

The annual event is a royal celebration of the Rose Queen’s Court, and is commemorated with a grand procession through the village.

Families can enjoy not only the spectacle of the Rose Queen’s Court parade, but be transported back in time with traditional fairground rides and games, Maypole dancing, various stalls, a flower show and, as the evening falls, Gaelic folk music and dancing at the jolly Ceilidh party.

The Royal Cheshire County Show

A great event for animal lovers! Held annually in nearby Tabley, the show holds many competition classes for cattle, sheep, pigs, and dairy goats. There are also hundreds of classes for light and heavy horses, show jumping, rare breeds of livestock, poultry, pygmy goats, pigeons, cavies, rabbits and a dog show.
