St Ives Food & Drink Festival

Annual event in May

The St Ives Food & Drink Festival is a three-day festival held annually in May.

The festival offers a packed music line up alongside our daytime artisan tents, food and drinks vendors, live music and food demos. We are very aware that the festival is an important weekend in the life of the town and wider region and a major opportunity for local food and drink producers, together with many chefs and musicians. We are always improving the event each year, and will bring you updates across the year in our newsletters including what’s new and how to get involved.

We have worked closely with our food serving BID members and created a Food Trail around St Ives as well as a Fringe Festival to move visitors around the town. Almost 100 local businesses have taken part, from local specialties to chef’s specials.
