About BFF

What is Berkhamsted Food Festival?

Berkhamsted Food Festival is a food festival which showcases our finest local eateries, producers and food suppliers in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere. Food tastings, demos, a marketplace, children’s entertainment and live music all come together for a delightfully delicious day that benefits local charities The Hospice of St Francis and DENS.

The inaugural Berkhamsted Food Festival was held in September 2015 - on a fabulously sunny day, we welcomed over 25 local food producers, and over 1500 people through the gates. Thousands of portions of food were devoured, local ale drunk, music danced along to, and foodie items purchased!

 2018 is going to be our year to take some time to get creative and we are super busy connecting and discovering new foodie trends and talents all the time. 

We will be back in 2019 with an even bigger & better BFF
