Harpenden Food & Drink Festival


Following guidance released by the Government, in liaison with the Royal Family, we are able to confirm that Town Council events including the Harpenden Food and Drink Festival will go ahead. The National Anthem will be played at the opening and closing of this event. Cllr Lisa Scriven, the Mayor of Harpenden will say a few words on behalf of the Town Council which will be followed by a minute's silence at 6pm.


Harpenden's Food and Drinks Festival 2022 is set to be even better this year with something for everyone!

Not only will the occasion feature more than 70 food stalls, from fresh market-stall produce to a diverse array of street food to suit everyone’s taste, the weekend will also include outdoor community seating areas, a DJ playing summer time hits, a live music stage and a children’s zone featuring Captain Fantastic entertainment, face painting, outdoor games, soft play, and Storytime by Harpenden Library. The Harpenden Arms will run two bars, Oktoberfest will offer an authentic German experience while Eden events will be serving frozen cocktails.
A real hit in 2021 was the live music and this year should be just as much a highlight with bands performing though out the day. Performances from duo cover band Leader, Right as Rain pop rock and indie rock from The Maida Vales.
Further information can be found in the event programme which will be uploaded here soon.
Alongside this event, the annual Real Harpenden Beer Festival will take place in Rothamsted Park and the Statty Fair will be located on the Common.
Free parking will be available at the Station car parks, with thanks to Thameslink.
