We’re peeling back the curtain to give you the inside scoop into our 2023 festival of food, fun and sun! (🤞…praying to the weather lords!)
When we sit down and think about just how much we have over one weekend it is crazy! With over 50 traders, 16 acts, 2 DJs and 3 special evening events we know it’s going to be an incredible festival.
When we hear people say that food festivals are just places to “buy an overpriced lunch” – we can’t believe they don’t see that they are so much more than that! They are an exciting place for the community to come together, celebrate local culture and discover something new: whether that be new food, drink or artisanal produce. Even if you only have a couple of hours free this end of May Bank Holiday weekend, there will definitely be something great to see, eat or try out!
Mouthwatering Street Food Traders
The centre point of any food festival – the food! This year we’ve got returning classics as well as new local makers and salt shakers. Our returning traders include (but are not limited to):
- Churromania – Churros!
- Chef Stef – Mac N Cheese and Dirty Skin on Fries!
- Firery Dough Wood Fired Pizza – isn’t it obvious…
- The Yorkshire Crêpe Co – Traditional crêpes with the taste of Yorkshire
- Caribbean Fusion – Jamaican Street Food
Peeling back the curtain on the Main Stage (50% female artists)
Our Reyt Good Stage is back! And this time, it’s Solar Powered! ☀️☀️☀️
Our stage has been supplied by the lovely folks at Stage Bus. Our lineup features a 50/50 split between male and female artists from a huge mix of genres and vibes. These brilliant artists have been featured on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Sheffield and Tramlines Festival.
Stay tuned to our social media for act announcements coming very soon!
Something for the night time – Special Evening Events
They said it changes when the sun goes down – not this year!
Every night we have exciting free events for all the family to enjoy. Grab some food and a drink from our traders and get involved to be in with a chance to win special prizes. These events will be announced very soon, so keep an eye on our website and social media. They will be super fun events and a great way to celebrate the Bank Holiday weekend.
Unfortunately, this year there won’t be a Demo Kitchen this year, as we are introducing these new evening events. However, we hope to bring this back next year as we know how much you all love the demonstrations, produce and activity.
Instead, our main stage will feature a ‘Trader Hour’, where local traders will talk about the great food they create, give tips and advice and take your questions.
That’s all…for now!
There you have it! You’ve now had a glimpse into Sheffield Food Festival 2023. By seeing what’s in store for you this year we hope you will join us. There’s lots more coming on top of this, so don’t miss out.
Most people focus on the general event, but with a bit more of the inside scoop, we really believe you won’t find anything better to do this end of May. There’s still plenty of opportunities to get involved, so check out our homepage for all the information.
