After a sell-out first year in 2021, the family foodie festival focuses on a huge selection of freshly made international cuisine, independent bars and breweries, an artisan market featuring local produce, craft and wellbeing businesses, a stage with live music, entertainers and performers, an extensive children’s activities programme and a selection of fairground rides.

Michael Johnston, Festival Director, said: “After a sell-out 2021 show, we are thrilled to be returning to this town centre location.

"The Covid-19 pandemic restricted the event significantly last year but despite this, we received huge support from the people of Harrogate.
