Tenterden’s much-loved food and drink festival returns this year with a new name and a whole host of new cuisines.
The festival, rebranded for the first time this year as the Tenterden FreeWheelin FEASTival, will once again bring the best street food, bars, alfresco dining, live music and entertainment, artisan produce and arts and crafts stalls to the town’s recreation ground.
This year, the visitors can enjoy even more tasty treats as the festival has been extended to four days, taking place from Thursday, May 19 to Sunday, May 22.
Returning for the first time since the pandemic, the FEASTival will bring together food from all over the world, including Mexican, Japanese, Thai, Chinese, Greek, American, French and Caribbean.
Whether you want a juicy burger, flavoursome souvlaki or sweet crepe, there will be something to suit everyone’s tastes.
There will also be bars serving refreshing cold drinks for you to sip as you stroll through the park.
If you want something to take home with you, there will also be a selection of stalls selling fresh produce, such as olives, cheese, seasonal fruits, breads, cakes, brownies, coconut macaroons and old English fudge, from artisan grocers.
You can also pick out some unique gifts and homeware from the range of arts and crafts stands at the festival.
To keep you entertained, the festival will also feature a stage of live music each day, with artists from Kent and the surrounding areas.
“We are delighted to be returning to Tenterden where our festivals receive a warm welcome,” says Paul Kennedy, director of Zoom Events who are hosting this year’s festival. “This year we have a strong line up of content for the event as the events industry continues to bounce back following the pandemic restrictions.”
The Tenterden FreeWheelin FEASTival takes place from Thursday, May 19 to Sunday, May 22 at Tenterden Recreation Ground. Entry is free and no booking is required. Find out more information here.
