Bakewell Food Festival

It is with great regret that we will not be going ahead with the Bakewell Food Festival again this year.

Unfortunately with the situation across the country still being unstable, we do not want to put any additional pressure on the town that we all love so much, nor do we want to risk endangering residents, traders & visitors alike. We do hope you understand and respect our decision.

We are currently looking into one or two other options to hopefully hold something later in the year, government guidance depending. Please keep an eye on this page for any further updates.

The ever popular Bakewell Food Festival which attracts thousands of visitors is now in its ninth year and will once again be held around the streets of the beautiful and historic Peak District riverside market town. Bakewell's wealth of shops, pubs and cafes will be open as normal. With craft and gift fairs in the Town Hall, Brigade Hall and Medway centre.

Approximately100 stalls with the focus being on food and drink, the Bakewell Food Festival will once more be celebrating the wealth of excellent local produce that the Peak District has to offer. The town's historic streets will be host to more than their usual splendid offerings of food fayre to tempt your palate. Here is a selection on what to look out for.
