Children inspecting the Edible Monsters

Queen’s Park Day is a large, popular, free community event held in Queen’s Park each September.  There are arena events, music on the bandstand, fancy dress and other competitions and stalls.

How to decide? Robert Budwig and Kitty Stirling from Loop Artists judge the children’s Fancy Dress

It has been organised annually by the Queen’s Park Area Residents’ Association for 35 years. A group of volunteers do the advance planning and many more volunteers are involved on the day to make sure everything runs smoothly.

QPARA volunteers ready to sign up new members

The City of London who own and manage the park give us permission to run Queen’s Park Day and the park staff give invaluable help both beforehand and on the day itself.  We do not aim to make a profit from the day, but simply to cover our costs which are largely met from a mixture of grant funding, sponsorship and stall fees.  Where possible we subsidise rides such as the donkey rides and climbing wall!

Sponsor Us

We couldn’t put on Queen’s Park Day without generous sponsorship from local businesses.  Your organisation could sponsor an event or place an advert in the programme.  Adverts cost between £600 (for a full page) and £150 (for a quarter page).  Whether you could offer £100 or £1,000 we would love to hear from you to discuss your involvement.  Contact Carin Von Drehle carin@queensparkday.org.uk.
