Colchester Foood & Drink Festival

Colchester Foood & Drink Festival


Now in its 13th successful year set in Colchester’s beautiful Castle Park. There will be lots of old favorites and this year we have some new and exciting stalls and products to tempt you.

Over 100 different stalls with local and international food and drink. There will be so much to see and try. There will be food and drink to eat on the spot. There will be food and drink to make a picnic with. And lots of food and drink to take home.

The Pikestaff Inn real ale bar will also feature lots of different ciders in 2017 and good cold lager. In 2017 you can enjoy champagne, Prosecco and cocktails at our new bar. New to this year you can learn how to make the perfect cocktail at our Cocktail Creative Classes.

Our Celebrity Chef Kitchen will be performing all day and of course is FREE. Relax in the wonderful atmosphere of this much loved Festival. You can have a picnic, listen to the music. Stroll around the stalls trying some of the artisan produced local goodies.

Inside the Festival with FREE entry is the Colchester Rose Show. Over 100 years old the show has some lovely exhibits. And YOU can enter, perhaps even win one of the silver trophies (see Rose Show Classes button below).
