Head to the market town of Oswestry in July for a celebration of local produce and culinary cuisine

The ever-popular Oswestry Food & Drink Festival, probably the friendliest food festival in Shropshire, is back for its 13th year. This popular free event once again takes place right in the heart of Oswestry town centre on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th July from 10am till 4pm.   

The very best specialist food and drink exhibitors from the region will be baking and brewing to bring their delicious wares for your table across the weekend. The streets will be alive with aromas of African, Middle-Eastern, Malaysian, Indian, and Spanish cooking, plus the pick of local produce from sausages to hog roast, and crepes to ciders. For the sweet of tooth, there’s traditional cakes, cupcakes and fancies galore!

There are award-winning ciders and ales from both sides of the border, not to mention cocktails, liqueurs and wines from near and far too. We also have Oswestry’s own gin and real ale producers attending the festival. As well as the fabulous food and drink, there’ll be live music and other family activities throughout the weekend to entertain, again all for free!. 

Whilst exploring the festival look out for the huge variety of independent coffee shops and retailers available throughout Oswestry and perhaps take a festival picnic to Cae Glas Park where you find the fun packed TNS Fun Day on the 9th. While on Sunday 10th July, there’ll be the ever popular Reggae in the Park for those who just want to chill with their festival goodies to some great music. Both these events are again free to attend and are a great family day out.     

'We’re really looking forward to the weekend,' says Oswestry Mayor, Councillor Jay Moore. 'We have our festival favourites that visitors love to see every year, to stock up on tasty treats, plus specialist exhibitors introducing themselves to an Oswestry audience for the first time'. The festival is brought to you through Oswestry Town Council.
