Woking Food & Drink Festival

30 August to 1 September 2019

Food lovers should make room for another large helping of celebrity chefs, live demos, expert talks and a fantastic assortment of street food, artisan goods and local produce.

All this and more will be served up with a sprinkling of top-class entertainment at the multi award-winning,  free-to-attend, Woking Food and Drink Festival!

What to expect at 2019's food festival

  • Watch culinary masters in action. Taking centre stage in Jubilee Square, the purpose-built Woking Shopping Demo Theatre, supported by international culinary innovator Magimix, will house 20 live cookery demonstrations, featuring talented and highly regarded celebrity and local chefs.

  • Browse, graze and stock up. You can forage amongst 80 food and drink traders, which will be fully stocked with artisan products, freshly prepared dishes and tipples hailing from the locality, the UK and across the world.

  • Tickle your tastebuds with something new. If you want to add some extra flavour to your visit,  the festival will be offering a selection of wine masterclasses and tastings and, new for this year’s event, pop up dining experiences at a number of independent venues around the town.

  • Bite-size talks. Hosted in the Surrey Life Entertainment Tent, compere Hersha Patel will chat with a panel of local producers and experts about their tricks of the trade and specialist knowledge on a range of subjects, including English wine, brewing, gin distilling, beekeeping, butchery, spices, and veganism.

  • Family entertainment. There are workshops to suit all ages and culinary abilities at this year's event and everyone will love the humorous street entertainers
  • Live music. Acoustics sets by local buskers will enhance your al fresco dining experience, and performances from local bands like The Farleys provide the extra topping to this year's festival.
