Peace Gardens – Pinstone Street – Sheffield – S1 2HH


Sheffield Food Festival is a celebration of the city’s vibrant food scene, showcasing our great local produce, talented chefs, mouthwatering street food and outstanding brewers and distillers.

The city’s largest free to attend event takes place for its eighth year from 26th – 28th May 2018 in the city centre, spreading across the Peace Gardens, Winter Gardens, Millennium Square, Town Hall Square and Fargate, attracting over 40,000 visitors across the weekend.

Our Artisan Market features food producers and businesses from around Sheffield and further afield, bringing a range of preserves, oils, cakes, cookery books, craft beers, gins, pies and much more for you to take home and enjoy. At the heart of the festival we have the Theatre Kitchen, featuring top chefs from across the city and showing how to get the best from the great local produce on offer. The extensive Street Food Market is jam packed with delicious treats from local companies and the Eats, Treats & Beats Festival Village extends this offer, with a hand picked selection of our very best street food traders open into the night, alongside our stylish stretch tent, al fresco seating, bar stocked by great local breweries and fantastic live music and DJs.

New for 2019, we have added an extra day for the main festival, which now starts on Friday the 24th of May and runs through to 6pm on Monday 27th May 2019 . We have extended the event footprint to now take over more of Fargate, which will include a focus on local produce traders, with a range of stalls and a Tea & Cake room with 50’s style music and dance floor.  

Returning this year is the Sheffield Food Festival Supper Club on the evenings of Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the Theatre Kitchen Marquee. It doesn’t end there! The Sheffield Food Festival programme includes plenty of  kids activities, to keep little hands and minds occupied whilst families enjoy a day of total food and drink indulgence. And not forgetting that there are many more serious issues raised around food – food poverty, managing food waste, the impact of our food choices on the environment and climate, to name a few – we have the Food For Thoughtprogramme of talks and debates to explore these issues.
