Sorry, our events calendar is full!

Please note, our events calendar is full for the 2021 summer period with the exception of some small events such as community litter picks.

Host a Large Outdoor Event


Events can be held in any of the parks but some parks are more suited to large events than others. Large events and activities are defined by having over 500 participants. A couple of our parks can accommodate up to 15,000 participants and may include but not exclusively, concerts, circus, sporting events, carnivals, community events, charitable events, religious services, funfairs, showing of films, corporate events and barbeques, dance or drama performances.

Large events that have been hosted in our parks include the Annual City Fireworks, Race for Life, Milton Keynes International Festival, Rugby World Cup Fanzone, Open Air Cinema, Proms in Campbell Park, World Cyclo-Cross Championships, British Sprint Orienteering Championships and Oktoberfest.
