Finsbury Park
London, England

This is a Community Festival that celebrates the multi cultural excitement of Finsbury Park Town Centre. FinFest is a free celebratory festival that will attract thousands of people to Finsbury Park.

The theme for this year’s festival is the diversity of Finsbury Park and the environment. The festival is part community celebration, part food celebration and all Carnival. It will help to bring about lasting change by encouraging all of us in the Finsbury Park community to bond, feel proud of and celebrate our diversity.
