Foodies of Sutton Coldfield and beyond will be delighted to learn that the first Sutton Coldfield Food Festival is coming to the Royal Town this summer.
The inaugural event, which is set to take place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June, will see the town filled with over 75 culinary delights from pop-up restaurants, street food vendors, local producers and breweries from across the region.
Taking place on the parade and throughout the centre, visitors will be able to tuck into a whole host of delicious dishes and cuisines from around the world, including tasty treats from amazing traders like Event Crepes, Street Kitchen Brothers and the English Indian to name just three!
As well as a veritable foodie feast, there will also be activities including cookery demonstrations and workshops throughout the weekend.
The festival will be delivered and funded by the team behind Lichfield’s popular food festivals Cocker Hoop Creative Limited, in partnership with Sutton Coldfield BID (Business Improvement District).
With an already vibrant and ever-expanding food quarter, following recent additions including Bodega Bar and Cantina, Sangria, and the Craft Inn, the celebration is expected to become part of the Royal Town’s exciting annual calendar of events.
Mike Bushell, Sutton Coldfield Town Centre BID Manager, said:
“We are thrilled to bring the first ever Food Festival to Sutton Coldfield, in partnership with Cockerhoop Creative. The town boasts a varied and vibrant foodie scene, and the festival will provide the perfect opportunity to celebrate everything that it has to offer with residents and visitors alike.
“We are certain the Food Festival will only further develop Sutton Coldfield’s offering, and look forward to announcing more details in the coming weeks.”
The Sutton Coldfield Food Festival will open from 9am to 5pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
