Jewellery Quarter Festival 2017 | Jewellery Quarter | Friday, 28. July 2017

The Jewellery Quarter Festival is a showcase of what Birminghamโ€™s Jewellery Quarter is today as well as a celebration of the vibrant business and wider JQ communities.

Organised by the Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (JQBID) and supported by local businesses, the festival takes place over a weekend in July each year and is ideal for visitors and families as well as anyone who lives, learns or works in the area.

The event is comprised of two main features; outdoor activities and entertainment on the two main public squares; and in a number of workshops and studios across the Quarter in the free Open Studios Trail.
