Food festivals 2024: top 3

Our top 3 food festivals 2024. We’ve delivered sampling and experiential activations at most UK food festivals. From food brands to tech brands we’ve created consumer experiences for clients like Tofoo, Pip & Nut, Little Moons and more. Here’s a selection of our favourite food festivals and why.

1. Barcode Festival

Barcode Festival is an absolute blast. Getting the food and drink industry’s finest brands and agencies together all in one place for a huge party. Taking place in London in July this is a unique festival where brands can show off their latest products to potential buyers. Under the guise of a professional event, this quickly descends into an all day party featuring the likes of Pete Tong, Rylan (!) and other superstars. A great gig if you want brand exposure and a good time (and a day off work).

2. Taste of London Food Festival

Held at Regent’s Park in June, this is the biggest UK food festival of the year. We exhibit, trade and sample for food and drink brands every year. Definitely not a budget friendly event – it’s very expensive for a pitch – but it gets over 55,000 hungry visitors across the 5 days. This year is their 20th anniversary and whilst it does cost a few quid to exhibit, from a brand exposure and taste perspective it’s second to none. A huge event and always sunny.

3. Foodies Festival

Foodies Festival used to be a little one-off food event on Blackheath Common. Now it’s a nationwide food festival held every year in Guildford, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Oxford just to name a few locations. It spans May, June, July, August and September and the larger dates gather more than 30,000 foodies together. We think this is a great value for money event. Loads of exposure, good fun and well organised. We always suggest a few of these events to clients and brands look for a cost effective food festival.
