Thanks for considering our festivals - here's what you need to know:

We take a lot of time choosing the producers we work with. We value your feedback and your customers' feedback too.

If you are considering applying please read the following statements which sum up what being a part of the #eatfestivalsfamily is about:

Community: food & drink producers who help and support each other, from bursary-winning first-time traders to seasoned experts.

Well run: our reputation is for a good footfall, effective promotion, great communication & excellent procedures.

Shared Responsibility: producers work together on pre-event promo, social media & face to face, ready for a great day's trade.

Collaborative: regular 360* constructive feedback means that we all steer the development of eat:Festivals for mutual benefit.

Sustainable: award-winning sustainability across all elements of the festivals - ecology, society, local economy.

Fun: we don't work with tossers.

For all our festivals we prioritise those from within 30 miles of the host town

We review applications at the start of every month. The process we follow for assessing is HERE

Applying:

We have high sustainability criteria - please read through these carefully and ensure you can meet these.
