Great Northern Food & Drink Festival 2021
August 28 - August 30
£6 – £30
The Great Northern Food & Drink Festival, a new foodie delight, will come to North Yorkshire in August, over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Organisers say that the festival will celebrate the wealth of indie Northern food and drink suppliers, as well as providing a great day out for the whole family to look forward to after the long lockdown.
“The purpose of the Festival is to celebrate all the smaller independent food and drink retailers and suppliers who have suffered during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to put them directly in front of their customers, face to face,” explains Festival organiser, Lee Touhig.
“We want to really focus on these businesses to give them the opportunity to sell their own produce in an environment customers can see, feel, taste and smell the produce.”
Social distancing procedures might be in place dependent upon government regulations at the time.
When is the Great Northern Food & Drink Festival?
The festival will be held in the spectacular setting of Scampston Hall near Malton from 28 to 30 August, 2021.
Organisers consider the festival a Giant Farmers Market that will include more than 200 exhibitors, and draw 20,000 visitors across the three days. There will be a selection of food and drink, including local produce, and crafts.
The British Summer is traditionally associated with food and other cultrual festivals. For a sample of what might be on offer (covid-permitted), read our 12 Summer Food Festivals in the UK and Ireland.
