May 2021 event cancelled.
We want you all to know that despite the lack of events this year, we are optimistically looking forward to 2021 when we hope to put on the usual May and October Food Festivals.
Statement from our Chairman, Steven Brown, about October 2020
The Spring Food Festival due to be held on May 16th is now cancelled because of the current Covid-19 situation.
We are now fully booked for October,
Despite the early rain and a rather chaotic set-up, the Food Festival on Saturday May 18th was one of our most busy and successful days thanks to all the volunteers who helped and the amazing stallholders.
A valiant team of volunteers known as Litter Free Alcester were visible throughout the Food Festival, encouraging visitors to be mindful of keeping the streets of Alcester free of litter and emptying the bins.
Our Spring Festival is only two weeks away. All our regulars and quite a few new stallholders will be there.
The 2018 awards were presented to the winners by the Earl of Yarmouth during a most enjoyable evening at the historic Alcester Town Hall.
The free Park and Ride is moving to a new site this year so please follow the signs.
The Awards Dinner will be held on Saturday, March 2nd at the historic Alcester Town Hall. The winners of each category judged at last October's Food Festival will be presented with a beautifully crafted glass award.
Tickets are almost sold out so if you wish to come please contact Alison Brown, Sales Director.
I have a newfound appreciation for how much hard work it has taken over the last ten years to make the Food Festival what it was on Saturday.
A dedicated and enthusiastic (I wonder why?) group of people became judges for the day during last Saturday's Autumn Food Festival. They were given the difficult task of finding the best three products (in their individual judgement) within a group of categories. The list of their choices is below. The overall winner in each category will be announced at an Awards Dinner to be held at the beginning of next year - date to be announced.
Only two days to go until our Autumn Food Festival.
Alcester Food Festival takes a responsible and mindful approach to recycling waste and litter resulting from each event.
Our October Food Festival is all set to be another huge success.

What a Fantastic Day! We cannot thank enough everyone who made this year's Spring Food Festival so successful - all the volunteers, the stall holders and the thousands of visitors who turned up.

Are you ready for the next event on Saturday 19th May? We are!!
With the vast majority of our October stallholders carrying their booking over to the May 19th Food Festival, we expect to be fully booked up within days of the remaining spaces being made available in December.
Welcome to our new web site! Our old site was looking a little tired and didn’t present the right image on a par with our increasing professionalism. Nor did it have the right functionality for today’s needs, where our visitors and stallholders want to access our information on several devices ranging from mobile phones to PC’s.
It’s impossible to control the weather and with outside events, such as the Alcester Food Festival, dramatic weather can have an impact. So it was when Storm Brian gave us no option other than to cancel the 21st October Food Festival.
