Two Weekends of Gastronomic Celebration

We are passionate about the amazing food products found here in East Anglia and the terrific people that produce them. The festivals are fantastic showcases for local food producers and for hand-picked specialist producers that travel to Essex from outside the area.

This year we are adding in lots of  activities for the little foodies in your life to keep them occupied while you enjoy the food and drink.  What's more once you have bought your entrance tickets all kids and adult activities including chef demonstrations, talks, tastings and classes are all COMPLETELY FREE.

Our Spring Festival is held at Chelmsford City Racecourse on 11th & 12th May when we transform this fantastic venue into a huge area packed full with an enormous selection of food and drink, chef demonstrations, cookery classes, talks and tastings, street food, live music and lots of great foodie activities for you and your children to enjoy.

In July our Summer Festival held on July 13th and 14th turns Cressing Temple Barns into a treasure trove of foodie delights. After eight years It has become well established and famous for it's friendly atmosphere, beautiful venue and fantastic food and drink producers.
