Published Thursday 25 August 2022

It’s back! Get set to sample some of the tastiest world cuisine around as the hugely popular Food and Drink Festival returns to Market Harborough over the bank holiday weekend.

After a two-year break, the free festival once again takes place at Welland Park on Saturday 27 August and Sunday 28 August 2022.

Food and Drink Festival crowds

Prior to 2020, the festival had become a firm favourite in the social calendar celebrating local food and drink businesses and allowing visitors to try local produce, watch cooking demonstrations and meet up with friends and family.

There will be local, national and international cuisine on offer, featuring mouth-watering hot food, a drinks zone, cakes, cheese, pies, street food and more.

Organised by Harborough Live Events, in partnership with Harborough District Council, the festival will welcome food and drink producers including Picks Organic, Gelati Rossa, Mirch Massala, Farrinheight, Platinum Pancakes and many more to tempt taste buds.

Cllr Phil King, Leader of Harborough District Council said: “It’s great to have this event back, following on from the success of the recent classic car show in the town centre. It’s previously attracted a huge number of people and the food and drink on offer is not to be missed. Best of all it’s free entry, so bring picnic blankets, chairs, sunhat and suncream, and enjoy a lovely day with friends and family.”

Gates open at 10am on Saturday until 5pm, and 10am until 4pm on Sunday.

There will be an on-site bar, plus tea, coffee, and cold refreshments, as well as musical entertainment from live musicians hosted by Harborough FM.
