Thank you for joining us at the highly anticipated Christchurch Food Festival 2024! We are thrilled to have shared this culinary journey with you as our vibrant festival returned to the heart of Christchurch.

This year, we celebrated the rich gastronomic heritage of the South Coast, bringing together food enthusiasts, renowned chefs, local producers, and eager visitors from far and wide. The incredible food, along with the exciting activities and entertainment, made this year’s festival truly unforgettable.

Highlights included live cooking demonstrations by renowned chefs, interactive workshops, tastings, live music performances, and children’s activities. There was something for everyone to enjoy, and we hope you left with wonderful memories and a satisfied appetite.

Whether you’re a devoted foodie, an aspiring home cook, or simply enjoyed immersing yourself in the vibrant atmosphere filled with delicious aromas and flavors, we thank you for being part of this special event. We look forward to seeing you again next year for another round of the Christchurch Food Festival, where we’ll once again savor the diverse culinary delights of the South Coast.

Next year's dates:Saturday 24th May, Sunday 25th May and Bank Holiday Monday 26th May 2024

Our Traders

We seek out and handpick great food and drink producers working with sustainable and ethically-minded traders so that visitors can discover unique and guaranteed quality.

We care about minimising our environmental footprint, supporting small businesses and the local economy and we will be subsidising the best, small independent producers to take part.

In 2025, as well as a great line-up of street food and craft drinks, we will be increasing our focus on produce and ingredients from the South and South West to bring you a truly unique line-up of extraordinary food and drink.
