The Ormskirk Gingerbread Festival was on Sunday 9 July, 2023 from 11 a.m to 4 p.m
This hugely successful family event was back with all the usual favourites – free children’s entertainment including face painting, free children’s fairground rides, competitions and non-stop musical entertainment in and around the town centre, together with the Artisan Market, organised by the Market Co.
We hope that the Festival will return to Ormskirk in July 2024!
Please come and join us to make it happen.
