10 things to do at the Southport Food Fest

 Sponsored by

Whether you are with the family, friends, with your hen party or are the stag, we have made sure there is plenty for you to enjoy.

To make it easier we have put together a top 10 guide of things to do when you are at the festival this year!

Have breakfast, lunch and dinner!

We have over 50 street food stalls so you can literally eat all day - we guarantee you will be stuffed!

Start the day with a bacon or sausage butty from a farm that hand rears the pigs along with a freshly brewed coffee or juice. Then spend the day nibbling on Persian food, American food, Thai food, Pizza, Vegan and Vegi…you name it, we have it!

Do your food shop right here!

Make sure you bring a shopping bag because our local producers have plenty you can take home. Cheesecake donuts, local honey, fresh fruit and veg boxes, meats, herbs and spices, cheese, olives…the list is endless so make sure the bag is HUGE!

Leave the car at home

If you are heading to the Southport Food and Drink Festival this year why not make the most of it and leave the car at home? Travel to the festival via Arriva services across Southport, meaning you can enjoy all of the food and drink on offer, without having to worry about driving or parking. Arriva are also at the festival so make sure you pay them a visit.
