Canterbury Food and Drink Festival - Friday 22 to Sunday 24 September 2017

The annual Canterbury Food and Drink Festival 2017 returns to the city from the 22nd to 24th September 2017. 

Closing the summer months and festival season in style The Dane John Gardens once again becomes the home of the finest food and drink Kent has to offer. Held on the 22nd, 23rd and 24th September, the Canterbury Food and Drink Festival has become a firm favourite in the Canterbury event calendar.

Offering two stages of live music, amazing street food, festival bar, kids area including fun fair rides and shopping in the Produced in Kent area - what better way could there be to enjoy an Indian summer.

On Saturday 23rd September take in the city with the Rock Choir from the Westgate Tower's to Dane John Gardens, enjoying the sights while listening to the choir's take on some popular music's classics, past and present.

Throughout the weekend some of the cities finest street musicians will be taking to our buskers area, surrounded by wonderful street food from around the globe. Alternatively shop around the county in our Produced in Kent area, while enjoying some of Kents finest Bands on the bandstand sponsored by Miles and Barr. If the kids have behaved themselves while you shopped and ate, it's probably time for them to let off some steam in the kids area and to enjoy the fun fair rides, but all the while you can take the chance to visit the Green Hop Bar for a quick pint in the Green Hop Beer Kent sponsored area.
