Sheffield Food Festival
Bank Holiday Weekends come in thick and fast in Spring and it seems like we’ve struck lucky two times running with the weather. Sheffielders love a festival, there’s always something going on, and Bank Holiday Weekends make another excuse to indulge. The Sheffield Food Festival is taking over the city centre for the eighth year running.
We are proud ‘makers’ here. We always have been and we are particularly good when it comes to food and drink (read about our breweries here and here). We have everything from independent restaurants from all cultures to highly skilled butchers and artisan bakers. The Sheffield Food Festival takes over the Peace Gardens and continues down Fargate with stalls offering the best of Sheffield, all in one place.
For the first time the festival kicked off on Friday, unfortunately that was the day the sun decided to have a break so it was a bit of a wash out but that wasn’t the case for Saturday which brought out thousands of people to the city centre. There was an upbeat atmosphere, queues on almost every stall, entertainment, music and bars, everything local. Why go for your typical big name brands when we can do better ourselves? The bars included beer from Kelham Island Brewery, Stancill Brewery & Sentinel Brewery whilst True North provided the gin.
If you want to do something interesting over the Bank Holiday Weekend, fill your stomach at the Sheffield Food Festival, it’s on until Monday and the Eats, Treats and Beats Village on Fargate stays open until 11pm on Saturday and Sunday.
