As more and more events are added to the calendar, many will be happy to see the return of a popular holiday that returns in its eighth year and celebrates the food industry as a whole.
Shropshire festivals are now full steam ahead to prepare for a season of late summer events, including the Shrewsbury Food Festival at the quarry at Shrewsbury, Shropshire.
Go back on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September the The award-winning events team is looking for new food, drink and craft exhibitors, as well as businesses for their home and garden section, which is brand new for their 2021 festival.
It will be the eighth Shrewsbury Food Festival with plans for 200 exhibitors of food, drink and crafts in the 29-acre quarry park.
There will be live demonstrations and lectures on the Shropshire Distillery stage, a chef’s school, live performances on the music stage and a range of activities for children.
Beth Heath, Director of Entertainment at Shropshire Festivals, said:
“This is a call to all businesses in the region looking to launch their sales, brand presence and profile in the region. Exhibit at the Shrewsbury Food Festival and stand in front of 30,000 locals in search of the best in local food, drink and produce!
“I am very sad to announce that some of our regular exhibitors are no longer in business after a very difficult year, so we have places to fill. I want to unearth all the hidden gems that maybe hadn’t considered the huge benefits of exhibiting at a festival before. This could include businesses that started out on lockdown, kitchen table bakers turned business owners, and businesses that, after a tough 2020, want to catapult their brand by standing in front of thousands on our festival!
“We are delighted that many new and exciting businesses have already signed up – including The Beefy Boys of Hereford which I predict will be a popular booth this year!
The Shrewsbury Food Festival will take place on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September at Shrewsbury’s Quarry and in the city center.
