Sheffield Food Festival 2024

25 May 2024 - 27 May 2024

Sheffield Food Festival returns in 2024 to celebrate the city's finest food, drinks and music, during the late May Bank Holiday Weekend, Saturday 25 May - Monday 27 May.

Each year, Sheffield Food Festival draws tens of thousands of visitors into the city to celebrate food and drink from across the region and beyond.

One of the city's largest free to attend events for all the family, the festival is a bustling exhibition of Sheffield’s thriving food & drink scene, with over 60 traders taking part, many of which are based locally.

This year’s festival includes four key sections to visit, starting with the traditional street food area, then the artisan market, the community hub and the main stage and bar.

There will also be two live music stages, free craft and music workshops plus a 10 piece walkabout brass band.

Once again, the entire festival will take place across Sheffield’s Peace Gardens, St Paul’s Parade, Millennium Square, Town Hall Square and Pinstone Street with the info village based in the Winter Gardens.
