About the festival
Sheffield Hallam University is delighted to confirm that the 2014 Sheffield Food Festival will take place over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend 24 to 26 May. In what is a very busy year for citywide events in Sheffield during 2014, we hope that timing the Festival over the bank holiday weekend will give the people of Sheffield even more time to visit and enjoy everything it has to offer. The Festival aims to celebrate South Yorkshire as a vibrant culinary destination showcasing the diverse food culture of the region and support the local food economy; it is a free urban event and last year saw a footfall of 244,000 visitors to the City Centre.
Over previous years the festival has centred on the Peace Gardens and Fargate, We are currently working with Sheffield City Council and our new partners - the Scottish Widows Investment Property Partnership Trust - to host the Festival from Town Hall Square and the Peace Gardens down to the Moor, to take advantage of re-developed public realm space along the Moor as well as including the latest arrival to Sheffield's food scene the new Market.
