Following the huge success of the Festival in 2019, where the city welcomed thousands* of additional visitors into the centre, the Coventry BID team is looking to make this year’s event bigger and better than ever.
After what has been an incredibly tough year for businesses throughout the city and region, particularly in the food and drink sector, the Coventry Food Festival is part of the BID’s toolbox to recovery, as the city comes back to life post-COVID and as it enters its UK City of Culture year.
Kicking off on Friday 23rd July, the Festival is aiming to host the largest selection of artisan food producers in the region. With dedicated zones for gluten-free and vegan produce, visitors will be able to eat their way around the world with stunning street food and some of the finest producers of cheese, chutney, eggs and sweet treats – all served with pop-up bars, cocktails, demonstrations and live music.
Food has a special ability to bring people together. There will be something for everyone from cheese to chutney, scotch eggs to brownies. There will be food choices from around the world including Indian, Mexican, Greek, German, Chinese, and many more. And let’s not forget the drinks offer available with beers, ales, wine, gin, lemonades, slush and more.
The cookery demonstration stage will have a packed line-up with celebrity and local chefs working from the same stage. Michelin Star chef Theo Randall taking the headline slot on the Saturday and Lesley Waters on the Sunday.
Coventry BID is thrilled to announce that Spice Girl, Melanie C, and M People’s Heather Small have been confirmed as the headline acts at Coventry’s “Big Foodie Weekend”, on Friday 23rd July and Saturday 24th July.
The pop superstars will be joined by artists Karen Harding, Rozalla, Shena, Booty Luv, Big Brovaz, Katherine Ellis and DJ Paul Morrell, bringing the party atmosphere to the Food Festival throughout the weekend.
Ticket Sales go live on the 31st May!
