Clitheroe Food Festival
A mouth-watering menu of food, drink and entertainment
You are warmly invited to a feast of family fun in Clitheroe on Saturday, August 10, when the town hosts its annual food festival.
This free-to-enter event will showcase food bursting with flavour from over 100 of the region’s best artisan producers, including:
Biltong beef and outdoor-reared Bowland pork
Sizzling sausage piroshky and Cinnamon burza
Beetroot gravadlax and organic ‘Bob’s knobs’
Devil pie and spicy ‘weaping reaper’ sauce
Cherry Bakewell gin and peanut butter hummus
Producers are screened for quality and this year’s festival features many with a national reputation, among them Choc Amor, Fatjax Chutney, Leagram Organic Dairy and Port of Lancaster Smokehouse.
And the event will dish up a huge dollop of street entertainment, including the plate-flipping and napkin-sculpting slapstick of the Comedy Waiters; the popular Mad Science, who will set up a series of fun stations featuring madcap demonstrations and hands-on activities, and non-stop live music.
The Clitheroe Food Festival is one of Lancashire’s most popular events, attracting 18,000 visitors to the town centre.
It is organised by Ribble Valley Borough Council and sponsored by Bowland Brewery and Fort Vale Engineering.
Food enthusiasts will find plenty to whet their appetites at this year’s event, so you are warmly invited to come along to Clitheroe and tuck into a feast of family fun.
