Visitor Info

Back for our 3rd year on Holman’s Field alongside historic Hythe Canal providing the most tranquil of settings for a fun filled event packed with entertainment for the whole family. The Hythe Food & Drink festival is growing – as well as our widest selection of grocery foods, drinks, street foods, & crafts to date, there will be children’s funfair rides, activity games, circus skills and story-telling.

For the grown-ups, The Famous Last Stand Co together with some dependable allies will be delivering a selection of bars to cater for every taste. From Pimm’s to Pale Ale and Cocktails to Craft Lagers – we’ve got you covered.

New for this year is Jazz Friday – an evening of live music will bring day 1 to a close and set the tone for a fantastic musical line up over the weekend. Keep watching this site for a full listing of live music throughout the weekend.

Saturday & Sunday see cooking demonstrations hosted by the Kent Cookery School and special guests the King Elvises also throwing a little something into the pot.

With visitor numbers reaching 12 000 last year, we have looked into making it easier to visit the Hythe Food & Drink Festival. On Friday and Saturday there will be car parking available on Hythe Green while on Sunday the Hythe Football club provides the space. At each venue there will be a charge of £2.00/car. Alternatively, why not take the bus or a train in – timetables listed on this site.
