The Nantwich Food Festival is one of the few UK food festivals based entirely within a town centre.

Nantwich has one of the largest collections of historic buildings in Cheshire, with Elizabethan, Georgian and Victorian architecture throughout the town centre. The 14th century St Marys Church is considered by some to be one of the finest medieval churches in the whole of England. The narrow streets are full of independent shops, selling a wide variety of food, wine, and much more as well as a lively community of coffee shops, restaurants and bars.

With cosy pubs and an array of independent shops, this annual family friendly festival celebrates all that is wonderful about local produce, as well as introducing cuisines from around the world. .

There has been a market in Nantwich since 1720, and as well as the thriving market held each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, there is a Farmers’ market on the last Saturday of every month, full of high-quality local produce. Nantwich is a small town with a big tradition of organising amazing festivals including the Jazz and Blues Festival each Easter weekend, the Words and Music Festival each October, Holly Holy Day each January, and of course the nationally acclaimed Nantwich Food and Drink Festival each September. We are also host to the famous Nantwich Show agricultural show and International Cheese Awards at the nearby Dorfold Hall.

For one long weekend each September, Nantwich is transformed into a food lovers’ paradise, with two marquees full of top quality food and drink producers from Cheshire, all around Great Britain and the world, as well as a wide variety of street food stalls. There is something for every age, taste and wallet, and it’s easy to find your way around the Festival and enjoy beautiful Nantwich at the same time, with plenty of friendly guides around town.


We have exhibitors from all over the world, food and drink from Mexico, America, Germany, Iran, India and Thailand, as well as artisan producers from all over the UK.
