TagFest Oxford 2022 was an absolute swelter of a weekend for Tag Rugby, hosting camping all weekend and an after-party for the ages to speak about.
TagFest Oxford 2023 is going to go further by increasing our capacity for playing teams and camping. We are also going to up the ante on more off-field activities, competitions and entertainment to complement the on-pitch action.
TagFest Oxford 2023 will once again host FREE all weekend camping, yes that’s right Free Camping. On Saturday evening, after a full day of Tag Rugby, the post tournament party will begin and continue late into the night with live music and DJ playing your favourite tunes. This is the ultimate combination of Tag and festival, with live music, after-party and camping!
Over the coming months we’ll be announcing the events and food offering that will take place throughout the day and into the evening at TagFest Oxford 2023.
TagFest Oxford 2023 will return to Oxford Rugby Football Club, in Hinksey, just a short taxi ride from Oxford City Centre and a 30 minute walk with a beautiful view from Oxford train station. We are looking forward to welcoming our widest array of tournament attendees as teams head to the tournament from across the UK and hopefully more.
The first matches of TagFest Oxford 2023 will kick-off at 11am and culminate with the Grand Final on the main pitch, in front of the after-party area. The winners’ presentations will take place shortly after the final.
