North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival

North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival

Popping up for the weekend in the Walled Garden, the much loved North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival, now in it’s 15th year, features artisan producers selling everything delightful and delicious.

The festival has grown into much anticipated event with an ever-growing team of local food and drink producers who grow, rear, produce, supply and sell food in North Norfolk.

This year, the setting will once again be the beautiful Walled Garden. Historically filled with vegetables and flowers grown for the Hall, nestled within huge brick and flint walls that offer protection from the elements, it makes for an ideal setting to celebrate the abundance of Norfolk.

Stallholders from across the county will be showcasing and selling products and produce including, fresh meat and game, vegetables, cakes, artisan beer, bread, tarts, juices, bakes, chocolates and much more! Just outside the main festival, you’ll find a dazzling array of concessions offering delicious food for eating on site as well as entertainment ranging from a live cookery theatre to children’s activities and face painting.

The festival is run as a not-for-profit organisation and team of volunteers to promote small, local businesses based here in Norfolk.
