Blenheim Palace Food Festival

26th – 28th May 2018

We are delighted to be working with the Fantastic British Food Festival team this year at the Blenheim Palace Food Festival.  2018 will be the 4th year the Blenheim Palace Food Festival has been running and regularly enjoys welcoming approx 23,000 people to the event each year.  In 2016, the event was named in the top 10 best food festivals in the world which is why we are excited about bringing the Cheese & Chilli vibe to such a prestigious event.  The event allows people to meet stallholders, sample delicious food & drink and enjoy talks and tastings from talented and entertaining chefs and producers – all in the wonderful setting of the grounds of Blenheim Palace

As well as this, there are plenty of activities for families at the festival – The Cheese & Chilli Festival element will be next to the Pleasure Gardens, maze and the Adventure Playground – so the kids will have a great day

Entry to the food festival is included in the admission ticket to Blenheim Palace – and the talks, tastings and demos are free as well, not to mention access to approx 120 stall holders selling a variety of amazing products.

Full details of the line-up of chefs appearing in the Talks, Tasting and Demo Hub will be published closer to the event – but look out for some well-known TV chefs and Masterchef finalists, not just at the event but within the Cheese & Chilli Festival area also.

There are also strolling musicians, children’s storyteller, face painting and garden games.

We can’t wait to see you there!!
