The Colchester Food & Drink Festival


Now in its 16th successful year set in Colchester’s beautiful Castle Park. There will be lots of old favourites and this year we have some new and exciting stalls and products to tempt you.

Featuring over 100 different stalls with local and international food and drink. There will be so much to see and try. Why not make a picnic or pick up lots of food and drink to take home.

The Pikestaff Inn real ale bar will also feature lots of different ciders and good cold lager.

In 2020 you can enjoy champagne, Prosecco and cocktails at our new bar and you can learn how to make the perfect cocktail at our Cocktail Creative Classes, plus our Celebrity Chef Kitchen will be performing all day.

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 is the Colchester Rose Show. Over 100 years old, the show has some lovely exhibits. 

£4 per adult each day. Under 14s go free. Tickets also available at the gate.
