Be Part of This Year’s Hampshire Food Festival

Local food group, Hampshire Fare is on the look-out for businesses involved in growing, making, selling or serving Hampshire food and drink.

The not-for-profit organisation is planning the 17th Hampshire Food Festival, taking place this July and is keen to hear from local businesses eager to be involved. The festival takes place from the 1st-31st July across the county and involves over 70 food and farming events.

Last summer’s festival attracted an estimated 145,400 visitors and generated £4.36 million in visitor spending. This celebration of the thriving local produce scene incorporates a wide range of events from farm and vineyard tours to pop-up restaurants, tastings and chef demos.

Tracy Nash, Commercial Manager of Hampshire Fare, commented: “Hampshire is bursting with delicious local food and drink. The month-long Hampshire Food Festival is an opportunity to show people what is grown and made in the county and offer unique experiences. From walking with buffalo to distillery tours or watching demos from top local chefs the festival offers something for all tastes! We’d love to hear from local food and farming businesses keen to run an event and benefit from the promotion it offers.”
