Tuck in to the best of Kingston upon Thames and the surrounding region at the annual Kingston Food Festival. To kick start the festival this year we have the Riverside Festival on 1 & 2 August, with fabulous food and drink along the riverfront.
Our anchor weekend of free food events runs Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August 2015 with the return of an even bigger Big Kingston Market featuring local restaurateurs, exciting hot foods, great local drinks and a host of growers and producers from across Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, alongside gourmet and international cuisines.
That weekend also sees the free Live Food Show showcasing top local chefs, the Children's Food Festival packed with tasty treats and hands-on fun for little foodies, plus the return of the Extreme Food Challenge. Dare you enter?
Restaurant Week also returns from 1 - 9 August with special offers at participating local eateries, the free Kingston Food Trail on Friday 7 August, Make Your Case – our punk wine tasting night at Ravens Ait Island, Bitter & Twisted - beer tasting, a tasting evening with Ridgeview Wine Estate and a special Riverside Pop Up where for one night only guest chefs join local chefs and deliver one off menus.
