Support UPFEST PRESENTS | Upfest


Help make UPFEST PRESENTS incredible!

Since our first festival in 2008, it has always been free to register for an artist space, and for visitors to attend. We want to keep it that way so this year we'll be adapting our approach and hosting a 17 day cultural programme.

Instead of our weekend festival in the park, Upfest will return in 2024 in a new guise, with new artworks being painted across 2 weeks. UPFEST PRESENTS...will pop-up at multiple venues across Bedminster and wider BS3 with free to attend workshops, live painting, artist talks, arts activities, panel discussions, theatre, comedy and tours exploring the area.

Get involved, help make UPFEST PRESENTS even more spectacular!
