The Countdown to Sheffield Food Festival 2019 Begins
Celebrating its ninth year, Sheffield Food Festival returns this Spring Bank Holiday 24th – 27th May 2019 across the Peace Gardens, Fargate and surrounding areas. Bringing an exciting blend of great local produce, mouthwatering street food, talented chefs and outstanding brewers and distillers. Headed up by festival organisers The Events Collective, Sheffield Food Festival highlights everything to celebrate in the local food and drink scene.
Promising to be the biggest festival yet, Festival Director Bob Worm said: “Our days are full of planning and preparation for the ninth year of the largest free to attend event in town. We have so many wonderful treats in store to seduce your pallets and fill your bellies. Then, of course, what better compliment to having great food to sit and enjoy in the Peace Gardens, than a cold tasty pint or cocktail from the range of bars and drinks vendors that we have added even more of on-site this year.”
It’s not all about filling your bellies though, the Theatre Kitchen chefs demo line up is shaping up to be the best yet and their new Green Village plans at the end of Millennium Square are going to offer food for thought quite literary. Then over at Orchard Square there is a whole host of free activities for kids to add to the morning children’s workshop sessions in the Winter gardens, so lots to do for all ages.
Last but by no means least is the return of the ever-popular Eat’s Treat’s & Beat’s Festival Village at the top of Fargate, with an even bigger selection of specialist Street Food Traders open 11am – 11pm and a fantastic music stage line up of the best local live acts and DJ’s to entertain you as you chill out in a hammock of dance through the afternoon whilst trying even more fabulous drink choice from the bars in the village.
The full programme of traders and activities for this year’s event is due to be released. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to hear the lineup. Plus, look out for the brand new Sheffield Food Festival magazine, which will be available across the city in May.
