Danson Festival has been cancelled because of “poor ground conditions” caused by the winter’s wet weather.
Councillor Don Massey, cabinet member for community safety and leisure, made the call on the advice of council workers as parts of the site are still saturated with water.
He said: “This is not a decision I have taken lightly and I know that many people will be disappointed.
“I decided I had to act now to protect the park and to avoid further work and expense for all those involved in the festival.”
Cory Riverside had already agreed to sponsor this year’s event.
