Christchurch Food Festival 2020 will be an extra special celebration as this year we coincide with the May Day bank holiday and 75th VE Day celebrations.

For the first time ever the Festival will take place over 3 days to include the new bank holiday on Friday 8th May

For 3 days we take over Christchurch with a full road closure along the High Street, loaded with stalls brimming with local produce and delicious street food, all the way down to the picturesque riverside setting of Christchurch Quay.

This year we have even more food, drink and entertainment in store with demos showcasing the best local chefs alongside some of the biggest names in the UK, live sheep at the Sheep Show and a special entertainment stage dedicated to VE Day performances.

Save the date for an incredible food experience of select local producers, street food, cocktails, craft beer and wine and a unique day out.

Friday 8th May, Saturday 9th May & Sunday 10th May 2020

Our Traders

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

Next year, 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.
