Market Harborough’s Food & Drink Festival promises to be even bigger and better when it returns to the town on Saturday 4 August and Sunday 5 August 2018.

Following on from the success of the 2016 event, the two day festival is being organized by Harborough District Council.

The event will be held in Welland Park, on Welland Park Road, Market Harborough, 11am to 7pm, and is aiming to showcase the very best of the regions producers.

Treats at Food and Drink festival

There will be local, national and international cuisine on offer; featuring mouth watering hot food, cider, beer, local meat, award-winning pies, fudge, chutney and cheese in abundance.

Street food traders will offer an exciting array of European, Asian, Indian and Caribbean foods.

Stalls will showcase a fabulous array of sweet treats from indulgent chocolate, to pancakes, waffles and cakes aplenty.

And for foodies looking to pick up some recipe tips, there will be a fantastic line up of chefs in the demo kitchen cooking up a treat over the two days.

Cllr James Hallam, assets portfolio holder for Harborough District Council, said, “After the great success of previous years, we’ve been working really hard to make sure this year’s festival is just as popular. It should be a fantastic, family focussed weekend and well worth travelling to.”

Cllr Phil King, deputy leader of the council, said: “We want to support events that bring visitors to the district and which boost the local economy. We hope people will come along and sample some of the great regional food and drink on offer.”

So, make a note in your diary and get your appetite ready for a fun filled foodie August weekend!
