Join This Year's Hammersmith Summer Street Fest

With music, food and pop-up stalls taking over traffic free town centre

There will be a Pride theme to this year's festival

May 20, 2024

Hammersmith’s summer celebrations begin on Saturday 1 June with the King Street Summer Street Fest, taking over the town centre from 11am through till 7pm.

The Fest will offer over 100 pop-up stalls on a traffic-free King Street, selling arts, crafts, jewellery, vintage, candles, home accessories, cupcakes and much more.

There will also be a food quarter with seating areas, street entertainment, children’s workshops and live music from local musicians including Abba tribute band Abba Stars Dancing Queen.

This year’s Summer Fest is also celebrating PRIDE, kicking off with a free guided walk uncovering some of the LGBT+ histories of Hammersmith as told through the lives and experiences of artists, writers, campaigners, athletes, medics and more.

The Cavalcade of Queer walk begins at 11am outside the Hammersmith & City and Circle Line Station at 11am. Book your place on the walk here.

Hammersmith BID has also produced a self-guided Pride walk which will be handed out during the day and, in partnership with King Street’s Livat shopping centre, will be making a Flower Wall at its stall between 12pm and 5pm.

Fest guests will be able to make a paper flower and add it to the rainbow wall or buy a beautiful flower crown in aid of West London Queer Project, a local non-profit driven by the desire to connect, support and give a voice to local LGBTQ+ people.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
