Sheffield’s biggest celebration of food and drink is set to return this May.

The finest food, drinks and music from across the city and the wider region will be on offer once again across the city centre on Saturday 25th - Monday 27th May 2024.

Recently named the UK’s best foodie hotspot, Sheffield is regarded for its diverse cuisines and quality produce. 

Councillor Martin Smith, Chair of the Economic Skills and Development Committee at Sheffield City Council, said:

“Sheffield has so much to offer in the way of great food, places to eat and drink. The city has recently been recognised for this, a good deal of which is down to the success of the Sheffield Food Festival, which has now been going for more than a decade.

“It’s also great to see local traders and independent Sheffield businesses come together and have the opportunity to sell their produce and showcase what they have to offer.”

This year’s event will see a range of new vendors (some of the names are below), as well as Sheffield Food Festival favourites return for the free event:

Yee Kwan ice cream
Caribbean Fusion
Frazers Coffee
Tamarind Kitchen
Paradiso Authentic italian
V or V Grill House
Flippin 'eck! Pancake Bar
Scrumptious by Lucy
Moss Valley Fine Meats
Malton Brewery Yorkshire Pudding Beer
Lucelas Chocolate Rum
Locksley Distilling

Applications to trade are still open, but pitches are filling up fast so apply now. APPLY HERE

Sheffield Food Festival have also received public funding from Arts Council England to develop the festival’s music programme, including more opportunities for local and emerging talent to be showcased.

This will also be used to engage local schools and students by offering them the opportunity to volunteer behind the scenes at the festival.

Noemi Antonelli, Managing Director at Swans Events, said:

“It’s fantastic to be bringing the iconic Sheffield Food Festival back to the city again in 2024.

“We are thrilled to have been awarded the grassroots music funding from Arts Council England and are excited to offer young people and emerging talent a platform at the festival, as well as celebrating our proud city’s heritage and diverse cuisine.”
