Do you like Pina Coladas or getting caught in the rain? Northwich hosted its first ever Pina Colada festival on 21st August 2021 in celebration of both the tropical cocktail and former resident Rupert Holmes, who penned the song “Escape (The Pina Colada Song”) which saw worldwide acclaim in the 70’s. And we’re bring it back for 2022! More details to be revealed soon. 

In the meantime, check out the PlazaPalooza that’s being organised by the same people behind the Pina Colada Festival!

The event is borne out of a viral facebook post by lockdown quiz host Tom Barrow, who suggested that the town should pay tribute to one of the towns most acclaimed hitmakers. Featuring live performances across the town, with alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions of the cocktail served across the town, the event hopes to become a Northwich mainstay in coming years
