After a year of event cancellation after event cancellation, we are pleased to say that the annual Manchester Food & Drink Festival is officially going ahead for 2020!

Expect an abundance of awesome street food markets, pop-up restaurants and an event programme that’ll be scattered all over the city centre. The 23rd annual festival will be taking place from 24th September to 5th October. 

The F&D Fest will be hosting a Festival Hub located at Cathedral Gardens which will be the heart of the event with a new layout designed to ensure the event is COVID-19 safe with the site being made up of two sections – The Feasting Quarter and the Festival Market.

The city’s no.1 event for food and drink will be open from 11am – 11pm each day with entry being completely FREE – amazing!

Both sections will be under cover with enough seating for all guests with operating table service throughout the event which means no more queueing for your favourite food vendors. Music will also be provided with live performances from some of Manchester’s best local bands and artists.

Be sure to tag @vibemanchester in your pictures during the event and we’ll share them on our pages.
