Last year, the Party on the Prom attracted thousands of people.
This year’s event, renamed Gravesham Riverside Festival, is set to be bigger and better.
The new-look festival will cover the entire riverside leisure area – the Prom, Fort Gardens and Gordon Gardens.
There will still be the main stage with tribute act winner Killer Queen headlining the live entertainment.
Also on the bill is record producer, musician and songwriter Angrej Ali, accompanying him on stage will be Nick Sahota and Sunny Hayre.
The winner of a competition for best act will have a slot on the main stage.
The contest was run in conjunction with kmfm.
Elsewhere there will be three big tops. One features circus skills and performances.
In the Fort Gardens there’s an Arty Party with lots to do including performances and workshops with Galley Beggar, Rock-a-Hillies, Balalaika, poetry recitals, music on the bandstand, kite making, Punch & Judy, face painting, Monica’s Makers Market and an artist’s village.
Team Kaizen will be mixing dance performances with drop-in workshops for all ages and abilities at the Fort Gardens.
The Let’s Recycle Together group in the Gordon Gardens will provide a fusion of creative fun and recycling for the whole family with creative art workshops by Emergency Exit Arts throughout the day.
Bin Bot – made from wheelie bins – will lead parades around the prom during the day.
Food and refreshments of all kinds will be available and there’s a traditional funfair on the recreation ground.
Also appearing on the main stage is local band - The Tonics, winners of the KMFM competition ‘Perform At Gravesham Riverside Festival’.
Melanie Norris, Director of Communities at the council said: “This year we have tried to make the Riverside Festival orientated around family fun.
"The day will finish a little earlier than in previous years and there is much more to do for the whole family with workshops and lots of exciting surprises and a great programme of entertainment. There is even pop up tea room.”
The festival on July 19 runs from noon until 6.45pm.
The Gravesham Riverside Festival is in partnership with Cohesion Pus.
