Wow….August Bank Holiday was epic, and we are delighted that the Christchurch Food Festival came back with a bang. With a new look and location, new fun features, great chefs and entertainment, everyone had a blast and now we are looking forward to 2022…

The dates for next year are confirmed and we will be moving back to a dateline closer to the original timeline.

Our original intention when we took over the festival was to run the event over the May Bank Holiday coinciding with the VE Day 75th Anniversary – a fabulous excuse for a great celebration.

Well for obvious reasons that didn’t happen but now we have another great opportunity for a party over the moved May Bank Holiday for the Queens Jubilee.

So the dates for 2022 are 2nd – 5th June – a 4 day bank holiday celebration of great food and drink, community, entertainment and summertime fun in the glorious location of Christchurch Quay.

We have lots of plans for even more entertainment, features and activities as well as the huge array of great food and drink and we will update this site with more information as we get closer to the event.
