Sheffield Food Festival


Sheffield Food Festival is a celebration of the city’s vibrant food scene, showcasing our 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 ninth year from 24 – 27 May 2019 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.  

The Artisan Market  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, the Theatre Kitchen features top chefs from across the city and showcasing how to get the best from the great local produce on offer.   

The extensive Street Food Market is jam packed with delicious treats from local companies and theEats, Treats & Beats Festival Village extends this offer, with a hand picked selection of the very best street food, staying open into the night complete with tent, al fresco seating, bar stocked by great local breweries and fantastic live music and DJs.

New for 2019,  organisers have added an extra day for the main festival, which now starts on Friday 24 May and runs through to 6pm on Monday 27 May.  The festival has also been extended to now take over more of Fargate, which will include a focus on local produce traders, traditional funfair rides for small children and to compliment this Orchard Square are hosting a range of free childrens activities over the weeekend.

Returning this year is the Sheffield Food Festival Supper Club on the evenings of Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Theatre Kitchen Marquee. It doesn’t end there! The Sheffield Food Festival programme includes plenty of  kids activities, to keep little hands and minds occupied whilst families enjoy a day of total food and drink indulgence. And not forgetting that 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 – there's also the Food For Thought programme of talks and debates to explore these issues.
