Parafest 2017 – the UKs Largest Paramotor Show 30th June to 2nd July


Now in its third year, Parafest has become the ‘must go to’ event in every pilots calendar. 

Parafest 2017 dates are confirmed as June 30 – July 2 at Caerwys, the same spectacular site on the North Wales coast as Parafest 2016. 
Everyone is equally welcome. Paramotors, Paragliders, hang gliders, powered hang gliders, SSDR, non pilots and children. More emphasis has been put on the non flying entertainment for 2017 to give Parafest its family friendly festival feel and we will have a full line-up of entertainment for adults and children alike. The camping fields will be open from the weekend before the festival starts (June 24) so you can arrive early, grab the best pitch and enjoy what Wales has to offer.
The GREAT news is that the powered pilots can use the massive field next to the festival site!

The many North Wales paragliding sites are also within easy driving distance from the festival and we have experienced local pilots offering details and site briefs to visiting pilots. One of the hills can be seen from the festival site and if conditions allow pilots will be able to glide back and land at Parafest. 
The two most important things for a festival have already been booked, the stage and the bar.

The line-up is growing fast – Fire breathing circus acrobats, Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd tribute acts are already confirmed, with more in the running, jostling for position. 

Saturday night is 80’s night and we are currently in negotiation with one of the UK’s top 80’s tribute acts to come and entertain us. So don’t forget your leg warmers and your shoulder pads..!!
Parafest is brought to you by a select and altruistic group of fly hard, play hard Paramotor pilots. 

The Paramotor Party Boyz guarantee a good time will be had by all. 

If you only go to one UK flying event in 2017 then, you need to make sure it’s the best, which means you must go to Parafest.
New website with full details and online ticket sales goes live in January.
