The Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival has been an annual event since 2005, and the festival returns for its 13th year on 26th and 27th September 2020. The two-day festival attracts over 40,000 people to the picturesque town of Holmfirth and this year promises to be another jam-packed weekend. Expect streets lined with tasty, quality produce, talented local musicians, entertainment for all the family, and one huge feast for your eyes…and stomachs of course!
Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival is a plastic clever festival, meaning all takeaways items (including cups and cutlery) must be made from recycled materials – single use plastic and polystyrene will NOT be allowed. Please find an alternative for plastic straws, plastic drinks bottles, and all takeaway containers. The festival team will be running social media competitions to celebrate re-use and re-cycle throughout the festival. We thank all traders for their support with this!
For this year’s festival fairandfunky are back! They are once again transforming Holmfirth Market Hall into a family food zone that will showcase local, Fairtrade and ethical businesses. The area will be a lively, engaging and interactive zone of the festival with live music and competitions for all the family. Applications for the fairandfunky family food zone open in May 2020, please visit www.fairandfunky.com for more details.
All the food stalls will be open 10am – 6pm on both days, and the stalls in Towngate (by Holmfirth bus station) will be open until 8pm on Saturday.
The team behind the festival is made up of a mix of local business owners and volunteers. Food Festivals Ltd have been commissioned to work with the Festival team to put on the event. If you would like to join the festival team get in touch!
