About Shrewsbury Food Festival
Started by two locals who already run the Shropshire Oktoberfest, Kids Festival and Christmas Festivals.
Shrewsbury Food Festival highlights local craft, unsigned bands, family entertainment and of course, all the regional food and drinks you can find.
This town’s fantastic food scene has been slowly coming onto the mainstream, with great producers and independent retailers and restaurants joining the fray.
Shrewsbury Food Festival is a celebration of food throughout the town, just northwest of Birmingham, and in the main festival site of Quarry Park.
The Unplugged area features up and coming local musicians. There are also kids entertainment, workshops and a Chef Demonstration stage with top local chefs and a Chef School.
Get Your BBQ On!
All the best BBQ teams from across the UK will also be in the Quarry Park competing for Shropshire’s best BBQ title.
You’re welcome to watch the teams as they prepare their victuals, which will take hours to make their BBQ the best.
The BBQ stage will also introduce you to top grill masters and tips on getting the best from your food.
