eat:Festivals are taking Government and WHO COVID-19 advice seriously.

We are resuming festivals on 8 August in Portishead

We have shared with you our approved COVID-19 Response Plan - as you would expect there will be some changes but there will still be a great range of local food and drink CLICK HERE to view it

Hello - welcome to the online home of eat:Festivals. A social enterprise focused on reconnecting people with the productive landscape that surrounds them. We showcase local food and drink producers at busy, one day food and drink festivals in town centres across Somerset.

As we approach each festival the town page is updated with maps, directions, transport options, accomodation links, accessibility information, listings, timings and much more information. Each festival also has a Facebook Event Page.

At all festivals the busiest times are 11 to 2, so if you like the pick of the crop and a bit of elbow room we recommend that you come early.


We will never charge you to learn about great local food and drink or try and sell you a ticket to go shopping. Ever.

Always free entry

Never ticketed
