First established by the Bermondsey Street Area Partnership (BSAP) in 2007, the festival has grown to become an independent community organisation in its own right.

Since 2007 the festival has expanded from its original home in Tanner Street Park to take over the street itself, as well as Leathermarket Gardens and Black Swan Yard.

The 2016 event included many of the regular elements of the festival, including maypole dancing, a fashion show and a dog show.
