About the Norfolk Food and Drink Festival

The Festival is co-ordinated by a non-profit organisation with any revenues ploughed back into arranging, promoting and developing the event. Our objective is to encourage everybody to have a better understanding of the importance of Norfolk food and drink to our economy, environment, health and well-being, countryside and agriculture. We aim to promote the event as a destination festival to encourage visitors to Norfolk. The Festival also allows us to promote opportunities for the food and hospitality industries to engage with the public.

The 2020 Festival will run from Saturday 26th August to Sunday 4th October with a strong focus around six main weekends drawing locals and visitors from Norfolk and beyond to demonstrate the diverse range of food and drink found in our fabulous county.
