The Halifax Food and Drink Festival 2014 – The biggest town centre festival Halifax has ever seen

Organised by the team at Marketing Halifax and supported by Calderdale Council, Borough Market and The Woolshops, the seventh annual Halifax Food & Drink Festival launches later this month across Halifax town centre, with thousands of visitors expected.

Saturday 21st June and Sunday 22nd June are the official dates, each day will bring something different to the festival. Saturday 21st offers a live demonstration kitchen with chefs and local producers taking to the stage, a homegrown Farmer’s Market, and we’ve heard on the grapevine that a Flashmob of school children may make an appearance!

Sunday 22nd showcases new talent on the demonstration kitchen stage, free sampling and giveaways. Plus across both festival days there will be a staggering 90 stalls for visitors to browse.

There will be local, regional, national and International cuisine, artisan breads and delicate cakes. Cider and beer brewed in the region served alongside cocktails and pitches of Pimms. European, Asian, Indian, African and Caribbean foods will nestle between coffee vans and fruit and veg stalls. Not forgetting sweet treats, healthy nibbles and cheese in abundance. There is something for all taste buds and all pockets.

Marketing Halifax Chair, The Reverend Canon Hilary Barber says; “Halifax is proving to be one of the North’s leading food and drink festivals, gaining more and more recognition over the years and increasing visitor numbers in to the town centre annually.

“With a sublime location, the Halifax Food and Drink Festival 2014 surrounds the Grade II Listed Borough Market on three sides offering festival-goers the opportunity to not only eat at the festival but also to shop in the market.

“Albion Street, Southgate, Cornmarket, Russell Street and The Woolshops are all playing host to the festival, which makes it the biggest town centre festival Halifax has ever seen!”

The Halifax Food and Drink Festival 2014 is free to attend and is suitable for all ages, with a number of stalls contributing to the increasing need to support food intolerances. There will be vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and nut free products available to buy at the festival.
