Foodies unite as a new food and drink festival is coming to Knutsford this summer!
Knutsford Food & Drink Festival will make its inaugural appearance on Saturday 13th August, bringing a variety of food and drink related activities together for one day across Knutsford.
Visitors can expect taster sessions and masterclasses as well as promotions across bars, restaurants, cafes and pubs in the town. A special Taste Knutsford walking food tour will be held on the day to give guests a real taste of Knutsford hospitality.
An indoor market will be held in St John’s Church on Church Hill from 11am – 5pm, offering the finest local food and drink products including speciality bakes, cheeses, pies, bottled wines and other artisan products.
An outdoor market will run on Silk Mill Street from 12-7pm, featuring an array of local street food traders, including Mexican, sausages, southern BBQ, pizza, Thai and more, as well as dessert offerings such as warm cookies, churros and crepes, plus a selection of local beer, wine and cocktails. The outdoor market will feature a seating area as well as a small stage with entertainment featuring local talent.
King Street will turn alfresco in the evening with the return of the al fresco dining event ‘head out not home’ where hospitality traders in the town bring dining onto the streets of Knutsford to continue the festivities. Princess Street and Minshull Street will have set things off the night before.
Events Officer at Knutsford Town Council, Alex Brown, said: “We are really excited to bring the first food and drink festival to Knutsford this summer. Knutsford is home to a fantastic selection of hospitality businesses and traders, and we hope this event will showcase and support this important trade which has faced hard times over the last couple of years.”
