parafest-logo

This summer a brand new flying show and social event for the paragliding and paramotoring community is hitting the UK calendar.

Situated in a picturesque country-central location and in the landing fields of the popular paragliding site Llangollen, North Wales will be Parafest 2015.

The camp and showground are at the base of Llangollen hill and there are plenty of other free-flying sites in the surrounding area that are within easy driving distance. We also have a flying field for paramotors and plenty of unrestricted airspace.

With paramotor and paragliding trader’s and schools exhibiting, a market area, kids zone, chainsaw carving, other sideshow attractions, caterers, all- weekend camping and a bar with live music in the marquee on Friday and Saturday nights Parafest 2015 will be a weekend to remember whatever the weather.
