About the Festival

The Story

The 18th Food and Drink Festival is brought to you by Huddersfield Live, who are a not for profit group of Huddersfield Businesses that are passionate about ensuring events in the town can survive and thrive.

Now grown to what we are told is the largest event of it’s kind the UK, regularly attracting crowds of substantially over 100,000, the challenges and costs with ensuring a safe, efficient and enjoyable experience are substantial.

Our Impact

We have been able to bring together many local businesses to stage the Food and Drink Festival.  Both the sponsorship and services we have received allows us to put the infrastructure together that can sustain the population of a small town, in such a small space, for the 4-day event.

Without the generous help of our partners, sponsors, suppliers, entertainers and not to mention our traders for taking the chance to trade with us – we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Please take the time to visit each trader, why not try something new?

We hope you enjoy your visit this year, do share your experience on social media (@huddsfoodfest or using #hfdf18), we would love to hear from you!

HFDF18 Team!
