The Colchester Food & Drink Festival

The Colchester Food & Drink Festival

23rd & 24th June 2018.

Colchester Lower Castle Park.

The Colchester Food and Drink Festival is a long established and much loved Festival.

We are opening the Colchester Food and Drink Festival applications early this year.
Last year was a particularly fine event for traders and the public alike.
We are certainly not resting on our laurels! We are crafting some new and very exciting additions to attract the public. And we are going to tell them all about it with a massive publicity campaign including our partners in Newsquest, BBC Essex, and Heart Radio. Plus of course our very successful social media campaigns which reached 96,000 local people last year. We aim to double this in 2018.
Last year we had to turn away traders because we were full. We are making some more space but we advise you to get your application in as soon as possible.
It attracts over 10,000 people per day. The publicity and marketing for this event has recently been awarded "Winner' for 'excellence' in the prestigious 'Business Awards'.

This year we are adding more attractions for the public. A children's animal petting area and an up graded Rose Show are just two of the new initiatives. We are still keeping the entry price low, children are free, and the parking for this town centre park venue is free. Leaving more money in their pockets to spend with you.

There are inside and outside pitches available. Electricity and water are also available.

Parking for traders is free. We can also facilitate overnight camping but please talk to us in advance.

We enjoy working in harmony with our traders and you will find us helpful and flexible.

Please fill in the form on this page and get the ball rolling!
