Clitheroe Food Festival 2022
Hailed as one of the best food festivals in the UK by Conde Nast Traveller, and listed in the Top Ten UK Food Festivals by Eventbrite, Clitheroe Food Festival will return for 2022 on Saturday 30th July, organised and promoted by Ribble Valley Borough Council.
The Festival is a FREE to enter event which attracts over 18,000 food lovers from across the UK. The focus of the festival is purely on the finest food and drink producers in Ribble Valley and Lancashire and all producers are screened for provenance.
Around the town there is a superb offering of fringe events, from producer talks and tastings, street entertainment, a small fun fair, history and art exhibitions, treasure hunts and of course music of all genres creating a true festival atmosphere against the backdrop of Clitheroe’s iconic castle.
Pitches are available for food producers and street food sellers. Street food is classed as any food or drink that is sold with the intention of being consumed immediately.
Exhibitors wishing to sell alcohol must apply for a Temporary Events Notice (TEN) from Ribble Valley Borough Council no less than 10 working days before the event.
All pitches are on hard standing. Wheeled catering trailers may not be suitable due to the nature of the sloping roads but we will do our best to accommodate where possible.
Access to electricity can be made available, at cost, in the Bull Ring and Food Court Areas ONLY.
Priority is given to food and drink producers from Ribble Valley and Lancashire; however exhibitors from further afield may be considered where the product on offer is not produced locally and/or where the business/product has won recent food awards. Please provide details in your application.
No single use plastics will be permitted and all street food must be served in compostable containers with wooden utensils.
Selected previous traders will be given priority, new traders will be able to apply from 4th April.
If your application is approved, you will receive a confirmation via Event Owl no later than Friday 29th April
If you chose to pay using the deposit scheme (select at checkout before entering card details) 50% of the appropriate fee will be taken upon being approved. If there are issues with your card transaction Event Owl will send you an email, you should then check with your bank immediately and rectify the issue.

Apply for this event
ALL APPLICATIONS ARE VIA EVENT OWL ONLY which requires a card payment. You will not be charged if you are declined.
This event is primarily for Lancashire artisan food and drink producers. Exhibiting Lancashire businesses must be located within the Lancashire County Council boundary. Guests will be accepted, particularly if they are award winning specialists, all guests must produce goods that none of our listed exhibitors are selling.
Producer Stalls are those selling produce made by themselves and not others, to take home (i.e. cakes, wine, cheese, jams etc) i.e. not for consumption at the event.
Street Foods are those hot/cold foods sold for immediate consumption at the event - pizzas, hog roasts, curries, ice cream etc. Proof of local supplier purchases may be asked for. Large catering vans not required.
We DO NOT require coffee vendors.
Onsite alcohol sales pitches are limited due to the proximity of our pubs, wine bars and cafes.
All producers are rotated each year so everyone has the opportunity of a 'good pitch'. However DO flag up on the application form any concerns you have about sun positions e.g. if you have a chocolate stand and need to be facing away from the sun for the majority of the day.
ALL vehicles/towing vehicles will be parked away, but in close proximity, from stands. Each stand booked = 1 vehicle pass.
TEN's APPLICATION LINK - only for accepted alcohol traders use.
A 50% deposit scheme is available for those approved. Please click on the relevant option at 'check out'. Balance due is 31st May 2022. If you forget to apply the discount, then give your card details and are subsequently approved, full payment will be taken. We will not amend this transaction.
