Food & Drink Festival 2017

It is impossible to miss and has become a much anticipated annual event so what are you going to try this year? For its tenth year the St Albans & Harpenden Food & Drink Festival is back to celebrate the craft, diversity and creation of food across the local area.
The St Albans Food & Drink Festival will again showcase the fantastic range of food, drink and produce available throughout St Albans District. With so many excellent eateries in St Albans and Harpenden providing fabulous food and a wide range of delightful drinking holes, the festival really is a great time of year to try something new or different.
The Food & Drink Festival week kicks off with the CAMRA Beer Festival running from 27-30th September before the St Albans Street Festival on the 1st October, with the Food & Drink Awards revealed at Sopwell House Hotel on Monday 2nd of October.  All of this is then followed by a week of celebratory events, talks and demonstrations, in and around the district, closing with Sustainable Saturday on 7th October.
Look out for the winners of the Food & Drink Awards that celebrate excellence and quality in St Albans and Harpenden. The nominated businesses were put forward early in the year and then sent for the public vote from 3rd July to 28th August. The Steering Group looks at the finalists, and decided on the ultimate winner of each category. After they have been revealed at the glittering Awards Dinner at Sopwell House Hotel you can then follow up by making sure you check out the winners.
