Sheffield Food Festival Sheffield Food Festival

Sheffield Food Festival is a large market-style event that celebrates the city’s vibrant food and drink scene, showcasing great local produce and mouth-watering street food.

Currently the city’s largest free to attend event, the festival takes place in the city centre across the Peace Gardens, Winter Garden, Millennium Square, Town Hall Square and Pinstone Street, attracting thousands of visitors across the weekend. 

The festival is split into several distinctive areas. The Artisan Market showcases a whole host of local food producers from across Sheffield and the wider region, offering fresh produce, spices, preserves, oils, cakes, craft beers, spirits and much more.

An extensive Street Food Market is also jam-packed with delicious treats from local companies, with over 90% of the traders based in the city, demonstrating how strong and diverse the Sheffield food scene is. The main festival stage also hosts live entertainment, with a variety of bands and DJs playing over the weekend. 

In 2022, the festival celebrated its 10th Year Anniversary and also coincided with Queen's Jubilee, helping to create a vibrant weekend of celebrations in Sheffield. For 2023, the festival is set to take place across the late May Bank Holiday weekend, 26 - 29 May.

A new festival producer team has also been announced for 2023, with Swans Events now at the helm of this flagship event for the city. They're planning to build on the event's 10 previous wonderful years and develop the festival further, working closely with the Sheffield community to deliver the best street food, artisanal produce, drinks, music and more.
