Welcome to the official website of the Buxton Well Dressing Festival for 2015! 175 logo picture

 Make a note in your diary:- CARNIVAL DAY 2015 will be SATURDAY 11th JULY. 

 2015 marks 175 years of the tradition of Well Dressing in Buxton and to celebrate we are aiming to make Carnival Day even bigger and better than usual.  Whether you are a business, an organisation or an individual, any help or support that you can provide will be very welcome. Please visit our  website www.buxtonwelldressing.co.uk or telephone John Moss on 01298 72230.

Do you love the fun of the Carnival? Would you like to be involved in our annual Festival?  We are always on the look out for volunteers and helpers all year round or during the Festival itself. If you would like to help please email us: contact@buxtonwelldressing.co.uk


Watch for the first time ever this ancient Derbyshire tradition as the petallers carefully bring the designs to life, all captured on a short time-lapse film.  Huge thanks to Anna and her team at EDNA for creating this wonderful video for us!
