The Delicious Doncaster Food Festival

The Delicious Doncaster Food Festival

As part of Markets Month in May, the Delicious Doncaster Food Festival has got food and drink lovers taste buds going.

Taking place in Doncaster town centre over three days from Friday 12th May to Sunday 14th May, the festival will feature entertainment, activities and over 50 providers of hot street food and artisan products. From Russian cuisine to flavoured gins and everything in between, Delicious Doncaster will have all tastes covered.

Multi-Michelin star award winning TV chef Jean-Christophe Novelli will also be making an appearance on Sunday as one of the exciting star attractions of the festival.

On the Friday of the festival, alongside the unique variety of food and drink on offer, Doncaster College students will be fronting the demonstration kitchen on the Market Square.

They’ll be focusing on family friendly recipes and healthy options, particularly based around a theme of ‘Fish Friday’.

Children will also be able to get involved in some cake decorating and for any budding Mary Berry’s and Paul Hollywood’s there’ll be a competition to find Doncaster’s star baker.

On Saturday, as well as being able to enjoy the wide range of food and drink on offer, visitors can take in some live music and dance thanks to the Doncaster Folk Festival.

‘The Teenage Market’ will also give young local entrepreneurs and performers a stage to showcase their talent on the Market Square.

As well as the cooking demonstrations from the multi-award winning chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, the Sunday of the festival will become ‘Slow Down Sunday’.

Along with the opportunity to sit back and relax with some good food and drink, there’ll be workshops, original entertainment and a look at subjects such as urban growing and foraging, offering a different dimension to the festival.

Delicious Doncaster Food and Drink Festival will run from 10am-6pm on Friday and Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday.
