This year we are planning to bring the high street alive and create a real party atmosphere in Ongar.
We will have a live PA System with local artists performing during throughout the day.
Instead of a raffle there will be a grand tombola in the high street with prizes donated from Ongar Business and all money will be going back into the community to nominated causes.
We are hoping that everyone will help with red white and blue decorations and shop fronts being decorated to support the Ongar Town Festival. With shops being open and bars and restaurants all having that party atmosphere.
On the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe (VE) Day we are encouraging people to raise a toast to those who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Second World War at 3pm, we want people around the ongar to raise a glass to our war heroes. Shortly before this there will be a parade through the street.
