We lco me

Welcome to the 2009 Holmfirth Food Festival. This year we are pleased to announce our biggest programme to date.

Our fourth year is filled with fun packed events for everyone, be it sampling ‘gourmet’ food, tasting local beers, or having your face painted. Enjoy the atmosphere of a bustling vibrant market and indulge yourself with an array of delicious delicacies to tempt the most discerning palate. Be entertained in the market hall by a variety of demonstrations, from butchery to pastry and cake making, to experiencing the ‘gift of oils’ and an elaborate wedding cake made of cheese. Vote for your favourite celebrity in the cook off challenges and watch first hand our local chefs produce some magical mouth watering dishes. Children present your healthy lunch boxes in our competition and take part in the ‘generation cookery’ game. A free park and ride scheme will be in place on both days, look out for signage on your way into Holmfirth for parking information or check the festival website in early September for full details.

Make sure you keep this guide with you during your visit as it is filled with plenty of special offers and discounts for you to use. We look forward to seeing you there and would like to thank Longley Farm for sponsoring the Festival once again.
