Oxford South Park: Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th September

Foodies Festival returns to Oxford 2nd to 4th September this summer for a feast of foodie fun, transforming South Parks into a food-lovers paradise with its celebration of the finest food, drink and culinary talent Oxfordshire has to offer.

Watch 2016 MasterChef champion Jane Devonshire, celebrity chef Rosemary Shrager, Michelin-starred chefs Janos Veres from The Hindshead and Nathan Eades from Simpsons and top local chefs cooking live in the Chefs Theatre.

…shop and sample from more award-winning producers than ever before…

Now you have the recipes, pick up everything you need to recreate these at home in the Artisan Market, where you can shop and sample from more award-winning producers than ever before, but be sure to leave room for a feast of international flavours and delicacies on the Street Food Avenue and champagne, wine and craft beer masterclasses in the Drinks Theatre.

Those with a sweet tooth will love the Cake & Bake Theatre – taste your way through baking and chocolate masterclasses with Burlesque Baker Charlotte White and master chocolatier Fiona Sciolti, or if Al Fresco dining is more your thing, then the BBQ Arena with grilling pros is the place to be – you’ll be amazed by their recipes and top tips!

After a day of foodie fun, picnic on the grass with friends and family and relax with live music from the Unsigned Music Awards and a refreshing cocktail from the Giant Pimm’s Teapot or Mojito Galleon, or enter the famous Chilli-Eating Competition.

A new 1920’s styled VIP tent offers a space to relax in style, with live music from a grand piano, a private mirror bar and a welcome glass of bubbly for VIPs.
