Foodies Festival, the UK’s largest celebration of food & drink returns to Oxford South Parks on 29th, 30th & 31st August for its sixth consecutive year.  Each year the ever-growing festival sees tens-of-thousands of visitors flock from the surrounding areas to feast on a vast array of culinary activities, making Foodies Festival the social event of the summer.  We have top chefs cooking in the Chef’s Theatre; wine, beer, and cocktails in the Drink’s Theatre; join top pastry chefs in the Chocolate, Cake, Bake and Preserves Theatre, and kids can learn to cook too in the Children’s Cookery Theatre.

The Festival can be found at the bottom end of Oxford South Park. The entrance to the festival can be found on Morrell Avenue.

Foodies Festival returns this summer with even more tasty treats for you to tuck into. As well as an extended Street Food Avenue serving up the country’s best street food, there is also an artisan Producers Market to explore; or take a champagne, beer or cocktails masterclass; watch top chefs cooking live in the Chefs Theatre and get top tips from the experts in the Cake & Bake Theatre and outdoor BBQ Arena. There is also a Childrens Cookery Theatre for the little foodies to explore their taste buds and learn how to cook food from around the world.

This year a new Feasting Tent can be found at the heart of the festival, becoming the social hub where visitors can enjoy eating with chefs, friends and family at long banqueting tables.

There is also a Vintage Tea Tent hosting daily tea dances, alongside a Vintage Kitchen Market where you can pick up beautiful pieces to add to your kitchens at home.

A new Chilli Food Market will excite those with a love for spicy foods with a range of chilli growers and artisan producers of sauces, sweets and jams. For those brave or foolish enough, a Chilli Eating Challenge takes place at 5pm daily. Try and break the record of 13 varieties of chillies eaten in one sitting to lift the chilli crown!

As well as a huge selection of food, drink and culinary activities for you to feast upon, there is also live music from entertainment stage and various pop-up bars and champagne and Pimms tents to relax in.
