2019 event set to be bigger and better than last year - Visit the site >

2012 was the first year for the Lancaster Food and Drink Festival and saw an amazing 8,500 visitors through the doors over the May bank holiday weekend.  We are doing it all again this year and the confirmed dates are Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May 2019.  Put it in your diaries.

Fantastic Foodie Weekend

Top quality local producers, growers, artisans, bars and respected food retailers are joined by 4 well known celebrated chefs in a packed timetable of foodie festivities over the two days.

Fantastic Food & Delicious Drinks by high quality local producers

Between 12 noon and 6pm, over May Bank Holiday weekend, visitors to the Lancaster Food and Drink Festival browsed over 60 artisan stalls, sampled different foodie delights, ate hot street food, basked in the superb sunshine and bought meats, breads, cheeses and wines to take home.

We didn’t forget about our younger visitors either. Children were treated to balloons, face painting, rides, magic and an indoor soft play area.

With free admission, free parking, free samples and high quality locally produced food and drink, this world class foodie heaven has plenty for any palette.
