Countdown to Sheffield Food Festival 2018 Begins

Celebrating its eighth year, Sheffield Food Festival 2018 runs from 26th – 28th May across the Peace Gardens and surrounding areas. Bringing an exciting blend of great local produce, mouthwatering street food, talented chefs and outstanding brewers and distillers, Sheffield Food Festival highlights everything to celebrate in the local food and drink scene. Last year’s event was a rip-roaring success under the stewardship of new organisers, Events Collective, who brought an estimated 44,000 people into the city centre across the weekend and engaged with more than 80 of the city’s food and drink businesses.

So what’s new for 2018? Laura Holmes, Sheffield Food Festival Programme Co-ordinator at Events Collective said:

“We’ve had a complete refresh of the site layout for this year, bringing all the wonderful Sheffield produce into the central Peace Gardens alongside the Theatre Kitchen, with our chefs demonstrating how to really get the best from it. We’ve added more fantastic street food, with a new street food van area with extra seating on Pinstone St. and for those really passionate foodies and people looking to develop a career or business in food, we’ve got a new Food Futures area within the Town Hall – expect talks, tastings, panel discussions, mini-masterclasses and loads more.”

Many of the firm favourites of the festival are due to return, including the hugely popular Eats, Treats & Beats Festival Village at the top of Fargate. This year it opens from Friday 25th May, with a hand-picked selection of the very best street food traders open into the night, alongside a stylish stretch tent, al fresco seating, a bar stocked by great local breweries and fantastic live music and DJs.

Plus, look out for the brand new Sheffield Food Festival magazine, which will be available across the city in May. Alongside recipes, articles, and restaurant offers, the magazine will provide a full guide to all the activities taking place on the food festival weekend.
