About The Festival
This year will be the fifth annual Cottingham Food and Drink Festival and we can’t wait to host another fun-filled day for all the family!
The festival, a showcase of the best that Yorkshire’s food and drink producers have to offer, started in 2013 and has grown year-on-year, to giving 25,000 people a day to buy from the exceptional producers and street food vendors in September 2016. This year, the event which is held in Cottingham village centre will be bigger than ever, with around 90 stalls attending with products ranging from artisan breads, cured meats, cheeses, locally produced beers and wines and much more!
On the Market Green, be sure to check out the cookery demonstrations held throughout the day from the best local chefs on how to prepare some of the ingredients you will see sold by producers. Last year, Ready Steady Cook and Saturday Kitchen star Brian Turner proved to be a hit with the audience, and we are pleased to say he will be back by popular demand this year.
So on Sunday 17th September if you fancy treating yourself to a few culinary delights, learning a few tips for the kitchen and helping our local food and drink producers, come down to the festival!
We’ll see you there!
Park and Ride Information
If you’re wondering how 25,000 people are going to fit into Cottingham, then make sure you use our free ‘Park and Ride’ service, available from the Cottingham High School’s car park on Harland Way, Cottingham, where you will be picked up by a vintage EYMS bus and taken to the village centre ready to try and buy the best food and drink our region has to offer.
