Parafest isn’t just for pilots, Parafest is for everyone.
Trading alongside the flying stalls we also have plenty of non flying stalls, a children’s area, a variety of food caterers, a licensed bar and many other sideshows and attractions, too much to list.
Professional live acts perform in the festival arena on a purpose built stage all day until midnight Friday and Saturday and those that like to party can head over to the Asbo Disco, the Parafest late night area distanced away from the camping fields, where we have DJ sets on until the early hours.
Parafest isn’t just a fly-in; Parafest is a festival that you can fly at.
Parafest isn’t just for pilots, Parafest is for everyone.

A NEW BROOD of baby dragons will make the inner walls of Harlech Castle their home next week as part of a drive to encourage visitors this summer.
Harlech Castle is set to welcome Dwynwen and her baby dragons, Dylan and Cariad, from Tuesday, 1 August.
Dylan and Cariad were named by members of the public in an online competition and have attracted visitors from across the country during their tour of Wales’ castles.
Touching down on 1 August within the walls of Harlech Castle, families and dragon-spotters alike will be able to see Dwynwen and her beastie bundles-of-joy until 13 August, before they continue their summer adventure across Wales.
Meanwhile, “dad” Dewi will hold the fort at his home of Caerphilly Castle.
The Baby Dragons’ arrival marks a new chapter in the Welsh Government’s historic environment service Cadw’s Live the Legends campaign, which is bringing Wales’ dramatic sites and stories to life during Visit Wales’ 2017 Year of Legends.
The latest additions to the Dragon Family complements National Museum Cardiff’s new Dinosaur Babies exhibition — part of an innovative collaboration between Cadw and Amgueddfa Cymru.
