Southport Food and Drink Festival

If you love food then make a date with the Southport Food and Drink Festival – a ‘foodies’ paradise with a little something for everyone to enjoy which usually takes place over the first weekend in June. 

Stimulate your senses and try food from different cultures – you can enjoy crepes, gourmet burgers, hot wings, churros, spiral potatoes, paella and curry from the Street Food stalls.

Tantalise the taste buds by sampling the different produce around the event - handmade cheeses, sausages, sweet and savoury pies, chutneys and pickles are just a few of the delights that can be taken home.

Traditional British food is celebrated throughout the street food and producers with homemade pies, chutneys, local sausages, hog roast, and ice cream from a local dairy.

Set in the beautiful Victoria Park, there will be entertainment from local bands throughout the day so once you have chosen what to eat you can sit on the grass, chill out and soak up the atmosphere.

If you are bringing the kids along then make sure you pop over to the ‘kids’ corner’.

Throughout the day they can get involved in circus workshops, food themed activities and much more.

Food wouldn’t be complete without a refreshing drink to wash it all down with.

You can enjoy real lemonade, cider, pimms, rum cocktails, craft beer or selection of non-alcoholic and healthy smoothies.
