Welcome to the Nantwich Food Festival – online for 2020!

As you know, we can’t put on the usual Nantwich Festival in September this year, but many of our exhibitors are still trading online and would be delighted to serve you. See them, below, in their 2020 Festival locations.
Many Nantwich businesses are also very much open, whether in town or online – support Nantwich and check out their links below.

Welcome to the Nantwich Food Festival

It is with great sadness that the Nantwich Food Festival Organising Committee have decided to cancel this year’s festival.

The decision to cancel during the current pandemic was not taken lightly and is based on concerns regarding health and safety and the uncertainty surrounding the holding of large-scale public events this year.

Planning for the festival begins many months in advance and with the lack of clarity surrounding what restrictions could be in place in the future, the committee do not believe it would be viable to hold an event this year.

The organisers appreciate the support they have received from volunteers, exhibitors, sponsors and the local council, and are aware of the local community’s desire for a return to ’normality’, but felt it would not be possible to offer an event that would parallel the success of previous festivals.

The Festival Chair, Chris Farrall, said on cancelling the event, “We are hugely disappointed to have had to make such a decision. However, we will now focus all our efforts on planning for the return of the festival in September 2022, when the event will be celebrating its 21st Anniversary. We cannot wait to welcome back our exhibitors, volunteers and visitors and will ensure we put on an extra special, safe event for the whole town to enjoy “

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.
