Food and Drink Festival’s City Centre street party on Sunday 25 September

Publication date:

Thousands of people are expected at the highlight of the Enjoy St Albans Food and Drink Festival – a six-hour-long street party.

The City Centre will be closed to traffic for the fun family event known as the St Albans Feastival on Sunday 25 September.

Attractions will include around 100 market stalls offering a vast variety of food and drink products from many local suppliers and hospitality businesses.

There will also be a cookery theatre featuring demonstrations of culinary skills by some of the District’s finest chefs and a children’s zone with free arts and crafts activities.

To add to the vibrant atmosphere, there will be live music provided by some of the District’s most talented musicians.

The Feastival is centred on St Peters Street, Market Place, the High Street and the public space by the Alban Arena with the party starting at noon and continuing until 6pm. 

Many of the activities are free and further details as well as information about other Festival events can be found here:

The Food and Drink Festival, now in its 15th year, is organised by St Albans City and District Council with the help of a steering group and is sponsored by SA Law and St Albans BID (Business Improvement District).

Its aim is to promote all aspects of the District’s important food and drink industry.

Councillor Danny Clare, Lead Councillor for Events, said:

St Albans Feastival is one of the most popular City centre events of the year and I urge people not to miss out.

This is a chance for people to show their support for our District’s food and drink businesses and sample some of their produce.

Our hospitality sector is of great importance to the local economy, attracting visitors and providing jobs.

The St Albans Feastival is an exciting occasion for people of all ages and backgrounds who want to experience new tastes, learn new kitchen skills and to just have some fun.

It makes for a great day out for families and friends with excellent entertainment being provided throughout.
