Taste Cheshire Food & Drink Festival

The organisers of the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival regret to announce the cancellation of the camping element of the festival, scheduled for March 28th – April 1st, 2024, at Chester Racecourse.

This difficult decision was made following a recent assessment by the Chester Racecourse grounds team, who deemed the camping area unsuitable for use due to current ground conditions.

All ticket holders who purchased camping packages will be contacted directly. They will be offered a full refund or the option to transfer their booking to the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival in 2025.

We are pleased to confirm that the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival itself will proceed as planned! Every effort has been made to ensure a fantastic experience for all attendees, regardless of the weather.

Additional measures taken include:

  • Increased marquee space: We have added extra marquees to provide more covered areas for food and drink stalls, as well as seating for guests.
  • Hard standing event: All public areas are located on hard standing surfaces to minimise any disruption due to weather conditions.

Parking Update:

Due to the conditions on the grassed areas, parking capacity may be slightly reduced. Priority parking will be given to disabled and VIP ticketholders. We encourage attendees to utilise public transportation or consider carpooling whenever possible.

Festival Still Set to Impress!

Despite the camping cancellation, the Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival promises to be a culinary extravaganza. With over 120 exhibitors, celebrity and local chef appearances, engaging cooking classes for adults and children, and a vibrant atmosphere, there’s something for everyone.

Tickets are available for purchase in advance online on this site or at the gate on the day of the event.

We look forward to welcoming you to a delicious and memorable Taste Cheshire Food and Drink Festival!
