The annual Fylde Coast Food & Drink Festival is back!

9th annual Fylde Coast Food & Drink Festival 2021

The annual Fylde Coast Food & Drink Festival returns for its 9th year at Marine Hall and Gardens on Sunday 15 August 2021 from 10am until 4pm. A fantastic, free, food-filled day out!

This year’s event is taking place across the whole of the impressive venue and showcases the finest food and drink from our region. With free entry, free parking and free entertainment and activities, it’s the perfect event for all food lovers and anyone who wants to enjoy a glorious day of indulgence by the seaside!

We will be joined by the best food and drink suppliers and there’ll be lots to try and buy including chocolates, cakes and coffees, artisan sauces, spices and preserves, speciality cheese and chutney’s, pies and puddings, wines, spirits, beers and lots more… you’ll be spoilt for choice!

With award-winning exhibitors and a range of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options, there is delicious food and drink catering for everyone’s taste!

There will be lots of free fun for the whole family throughout the day with live Owl displays, character meet and greets, free photo opportunities as well as lots of live music, exciting entertainment, dramatic aerial performances, walkabout theatre and a sporting activity area for everyone to enjoy this year too.

Taking place across the whole venue including the impressive main ballroom, the beautiful landscaped gardens, the brand new terrace bar on the colonnade and the Wyre beach bar with panoramic views and seafront beer garden there is so much to experience and enjoy.

We’ve kept the event slightly smaller this year but still perfectly formed, to ensure there is plenty of room for everyone to experience the event safely. There will be beach safety demonstrations and talks from our local Coastguard and Lifeboat teams and a Food Collection point for Fleetwood Together where we are asking people to donate any spare or unwanted tinned and packet foods.

Councillor Lynne Bowen portfolio holder for Leisure, Health and Community Engagement at Wyre Council comments “It has been wonderful to be able to plan this event for 2021 and provide an incredible free day out for people to enjoy this summer. The responses from exhibitors has been amazing and everyone is looking forward to being able to attend this popular event in person this year, following the virtual Food and Drink Festival we held in 2020.

“With live music and entertainment, children’s activities and of course the delicious local food and drink, the Fylde Coast Food and Drink Festival is the perfect event by the seaside for all the family to enjoy.”
