Sheftival is Sheffield's biggest ever festival of sport and culture, timed to celebrate our own Jess Ennis's Olympic final. On 4th and 5th August, the best of the city's music, sporting and event organisers will be taking over the Don Valley Complex with an event programme as lively, colourful and diverse as Sheffield itself. Sheftival is our take on an Olympics party, done festival style!
Priced to make everyone feel welcome, Sheftival will be hosting the city's biggest outdoor pop concert this summer with help from our festival partners Real Radio and friends at Tramlines festival. You can enjoy something different at the The JuJu Club World Music stage and chill out or make things in the Sharrow Festival Family area. We have The Monkey Bump Dance Tent showcasing Sheffield's leading club brands, a Buskers Barge, acoustic stages, plus music and entertainment all over the site.
And in true festival style, we will be filling the site with loads of other things to do. Enjoy mouth watering gourmet food, peruse Devonshire Market's arts, farmers markets, a real ale trail, crafts (and cupcakes no doubt!), and Jamaican jerk barbeque. You can join the carnival parade, hit the fairground or even go ice skating for free!
We will be showing Jess Ennis, Usain Bolt and the rest of the Olympics, live on a 40square metre big screen in Don Valley Stadium, where anyone can join us for free. Dotted throughout the site and taking over The English Institute of Sport, there will be sports, demonstrations and tournaments from Sheffield Eagles ruby league, aerial extreme with Activity Sheffield, table tennis competitions, Hallamshire FA Junior futsal tournament, judo, boxing, fitness classes including zumba and boxercise, and loads more beside. Armchair fans can join our Interactive Olympics in the technology zone.
