A statement in view of enquiries regarding the current Coronavirus situation.

The Food Festival’s priority is to safeguard the health of all attendees – our visitors, exhibitors, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters. We will abide by the Government’s advice and recommendations applicable at that time.

To maximise the safety of all attendees we aim to supply additional hand washing/sanitising facilities to be made widely available. Notices reminding everyone of the importance of handwashing and other protective measures will be displayed. Exhibitors will be reminded about the importance of hygiene during food preparations. Our Food Safety Officer will be at the festival to monitor compliance with food safety, as in previous years. Our festival volunteers will be on hand to advise and support with any concerns.

We continue to plan and organise for the September event, on the basis that the festival will go ahead. We will continue to review the position, developing all necessary measures and keeping you informed as the situation develops

Are you interested in exhibiting in 2022?

The Nantwich Food Festival will be returning in 2022, aiming to reconfirm our reputation as one of the most popular and respected food festivals in the country. We have attracted over 40,000 visitors to our 3 day event over the first weekend every September, making us one of the UK’s largest free to enter Food Festivals.

We are a free to visit Food Festival and have two gourmet food halls set within the heart of our historic town centre. As well as food & drink from around the world, we offer crowd-pulling family activities all weekend including street entertainment, kids’ activities, cookery demonstrations, 2 live music stages, tastings, local and celebrity chefs.

As well as free wifi for all our exhibitors, you get our personalised booking assistance – we’re not a big corporate, and we get great feedback for going the extra mile. Repeat bookings are high, a testament to exhibitor satisfaction, but we’re always looking for high-quality additions to join our foodie family!
