Oakamoor Village Festival 2021

11 Sep 2021 | BY Jo & Steve

  Oakamoor Unlocked got underway with a great murder mystery on Saturday night at the local village school followed on the Sunday with a charity dog show and a raft race on the Willows right opposite The Beehive Guest House.

A fantastic summers day greeted us with lots of our 4 legged friends strutting their stuff around the dog show arena. With rosettes awarded for Waggiest Tail, Dapper Dog and Gorgeous Girl, Best in Show amongst others.

After the dog show and the duck race (only plastic yellow ones involved!) was the charity raft race in aid of Mountain Rescue, where intrepid teams on their homemade contraptions battled it out to take home the converted trophy and bragging rights. The “Floaters” retained their title from 2019 but next year’s race promises to be a good one as several teams within the village are now determined to take their crown!

Throughout the day homemade cakes and refreshments were on sale in the village hall, with a hot food stall and small pop up shops on the Willows. Locally grown fruit and veg as well as jams, cakes and crafts were all on display in The Flower & Produce show in the Village Hall.

A big thank you to all the organisers, volunteers and participants who made it such a great weekend! Roll on next year…….
