Chow Down Halifax Piece Hall

The Chow Down, the UK’s biggest food festival returns to Halifax’s iconic Piece Hall. With two big Bank Holiday weekends bookending a summer of festivals during May, July and August.

Expect to find something to suit all tastebuds, diets and budgets – from the very best independent street food traders in the UK.

Each weekend they’ll have a different selection of handpicked street food traders, who will be bringing cuisines from all over the UK and the rest of the world. Once again, they’ll be committing to their target of 25% of the offering being either vegetarian or vegan.

They’re bringing some of their favourite craft beer breweries to Halifax, so you can sample some of the finest beers the country has to offer – whether it be draught or in cans. And if beer’s not your thing, fear not – as their prosecco van will be stocked and ready, as well as a range of refreshing cocktails – perfect for those hot summers days. A variety of spirits and soft drinks will also be present at Chow Down this year.
