Sutton Coldfield’s first Food Festival has been hailed a huge success, with foodies from across the region flocking to feast over the weekend.
The inaugural event, which took place on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 June, saw the Royal Town come to life with culinary delights from over 75 pop-up restaurants, street food vendors, local producers and breweries.
Among the vendors serving up a taste sensation were Event Crepes, Street Kitchen Brothers, Patty Freaks, and the English Indian, to name just a few.
A host of craft beers, cocktails, and gins were also available to whet the whistle, from the likes of the British Bus Bar, Prosecco Box, Tipple Your Fancy, and Beetle Juice Cocktail Bar.
Guests also gained expert advice and top tips from a variety of cookery demonstrations and workshops throughout the weekend.
The festival was delivered and funded by the team behind Lichfield’s popular food festival, Cocker Hoop Creative Limited in partnership with Sutton Coldfield BID (Business Improvement District).
Mike Bushell, Sutton Coldfield Town Centre BID Manager said:
“We are delighted that the first Sutton Coldfield Food Festival was such a hit with the community. We were thrilled to see so many locals join us in the beautiful sunshine, for what was a wonderful weekend celebrating all of the fantastic food and drink our region has to offer.
“Thanks to its overwhelming popularity and resounding success, we very much hope the Food Festival will become a regular occurrence on our calendar of events, further adding to the vibrant and varied food scene in Sutton Coldfield,” he added.
The Sutton Coldfield Food Festival is the latest addition to the town’s food offering, with recent new venue openings including Bodega Bar and Cantina, Sangria, and the Craft Inn.
