The essential guide to the #SouthportFoodFest

Planning on coming to the #SouthportFoodFest ? As a team with over 10 years’ experience of going to the festival (and huge foodies) we have put together an essential guide to getting the most out of your weekend.

  1. First of all get the bus… there will be plenty of drink flowing, you don’t want to be driving!! Festival sponsor, Arriva have great bus links into the town from all over the North West, and they are now contactless! Plan your journey >>

  2. Do a full sweep / circuit of the site before you buy any food! Don't grab the first thing that takes your fancy. Even those Man V Food champions amongst you will run out of steam (and space) before you get half way round. We have over 50 street food vendors, so plenty to think about!
  3. Wear trousers/jeggings/jeans with an elasticated waist…or at least something to comfortably, you will be stuffed!
  4. And don't forget to wear comfortable shoes! The Festival is in a grassed park so heels are not an ideal choice!
  5. Bring a bag for life…there is plenty to buy and take home. Coffee Beans, Handmade Farmhouse Cheeses, piggy goodies,  Premium Distilled Gin, Chilli Products - sauces, chutneys, pickles, spice blends, seasoning, Infused Balsamic Oils & Salts, Smoked Garlic, Cake Mixes in Glass Jars...you name it, we have got it!
  6. Bring a blanket - make a base If the weather is nice then the park is a lovely place to chill out and relax. Footballs, cricket sets, Frisbees ... all welcome …. That’s assuming you can still move after eating half your own body weight in food!
  7. Enjoy the entertainment Throughout the day there will be music from local bands and musicians, cocktail flaring competition and more.
