About Victoria Day

Victoria Day is the biggest highlight in Aldershot's vibrant events calendar, The event celebrates Aldershot's close ties with Queen Victoria and attracts thousands of visitors to the town centre. This year, the event will also include the annual Get Involved Fair - part of Victoria Day, run in partnership with Rushmoor Voluntary Services.

This year's theme is 'Blossoms and Bees' and we'll be celebrating the English country garden.

We are working with the residents of the Aldershot Community Together group once more to organise the day, which promises to be full of fun and entertainment and a great day for the town.

What's on

Although the shape of the event may change in September due to the coronavirus outbreak, we hope that the highlight of the day will be the grand parade, which last year attracted more than 800 people including marching bands, schools, community groups, Normandy veterans, Nepali dancers, classic cars and Queen Victoria - Aldershot's Betty Bryce.

In previous years, the town centre has been transformed, with performances from local musicians and dancers in the bandstand, free children's crafts, face painting and many more action-packed activities.

Apply to take part

We encourage all community groups, schools, businesses, residents to take part, with opportunities to book a stall, join the parade, perform on the day - or something else.
