Described as a ‘foodies paradise’ the 2024 Southport Food and Drink Festival returns to the town’s Victoria Park later this month.

Toothsome treats to suit all tastes will be available at the hugely popular free festival, which runs from Friday 31st May to Sunday 2nd June.

 Traders from across the UK will be showcasing a whole world of epicurean enchantment, with dishes ranging from the sun-scorched Greek Isles to the snow-capped Canadian mountains. 

 There will be more than 50 tastebud-tingling street food stalls, plus another 50 artisanal producers and 17 bars on hand to showcase their fabulous products and services.

 Entertainment will also be provided throughout the three-day festival by 19 incredible performers and bands taking to the stage. These include The Jazzophonists, the Wellbeing Choir, Clay Highway and Olivia Armstrong.

 Councillor Marion Atkinson, Leader of Sefton Council, said:  “Southport’s annual Food and Drink Festival is one of the very best free events on our tourism calendar and each year thousands of people of all ages enjoy a smorgasbord of street food, artisan produce, coffees and other refreshments.

 “Visitors can indulge themselves as well as choose healthy alternatives as they enjoy a wonderful day out in what we hope will be a sun-drenched Victoria Park. 

 “And don’t think once the gates close of an evening that it’s all over. There’s so much to see and enjoy in Southport and I would encourage everyone to take some time to explore all that Sefton’s spectacular coastline has to offer.”
