Each year in late June, Whissendine hosts Feast Week, an ancient custom with its origins in the Middle Ages that entails a week of activities for the village. Feast Week events in recent years have included a 6-mile run, a Feast Week extravaganza, the knockout, scarecrow contests and a fête on the village green.
