Top Chef at Wilson’s Restaurant Jan Ostle said “Bristol is a foodie city by definition. There is a smouldering passion for local food and you’ve got to be good to work in Bristol. I’m honoured to have been accepted and to be able to fly the flag for Bristol. Last year the Foodies Festival was epic, we had such a great day. Our menu is basically on a blackboard. It changes every day depending on what we have in because we try to grow as much as we can from our farm in Pill and source from Bristol and the surrounding area. So it’ll be a little bit of the unknown at the festival, we’ll cobble something together and it should be a good laugh.”

Try sweet treats with Bake Off winners and top bakers, sample new wines, champagnes and cocktails, eat delicious street food from around the world, taste new flavours, meet artisan producers, have fun all day with chilli eating competitions and food challenges.

Plus brand new extended Kids Zone with Kids Cookery theatre, slime challenge and brand new Dog Arena. 

We are releasing new weekend tickets which let you enjoy three days of great food, great music and great fun, plus day tickets if you prefer to come for the day. Don’t forget that children under 12 and dogs get in for free.
