Sheffield Food Festival is a celebration of the city’s vibrant food scene, showcasing great local produce, talented chefs, mouthwatering street food and outstanding brewers and distillers.
The city’s largest free to attend event takes place for its tenth year in the city centre, spreading across the Peace Gardens, Winter Gardens, Millennium Square, Town Hall Square and Fargate, attracting over 50,000+ visitors across the weekend. This year's event is a special celebration of ten successful years of the city's largest free to attend event for all members of the family.
Fargate will include a giant marquee to focus on local produce traders, with a range of stalls and the Green Village, our area of the ethical and sustainable traders, topics and activities, will now be hosted in the Winter gardens. This area shows we are not just about filling your belly, but there are many more serious issues raised around food – food poverty, managing food waste, the impact of our food choices on the environment and climate, to name a few.
The event hosts a huge Artisan Market which features food producers and businesses from around Sheffield and further afield, bringing a range of preserves, oils, cakes, cookery books, craft beers, gins, pies and much more for you to take home and enjoy. At the heart of the festival we have the Theatre Kitchen, featuring top chefs and celebrities from across the city and beyond.
The extensive Street Food Market is jam packed with delicious treats from local companies and the Eats, Treats & Beats Festival Village will also have new entertainment features on offer too. In addition, a selection of our very best street food traders are open, alongside a stylish stretch tent, al fresco seating, bar stocked by great local breweries and fantastic live music and DJ’s, with a few special surprises as part of the 10th year celebrations.
