Welcome to the Manchester Food & Drink Festival 2018


Manchester Food and Drink Festival 2018

The Manchester Food and Drink Festival is a nationally acclaimed event. The 2018 Festival will be the 21st annual event to take over the city between 27th September – 8th October. Conceived and developed by Phil Jones in 1998, the event originated as a means of showing the rest of the nation that there was more to Manchester than meat pies and gravy! In the 20 festivals that have taken place over that time, it has achieved a national status, whilst Manchester’s dining scene is unrecognisably transformed. The Festival takes place in venues across the city, and at the Festival Hub on Albert Square, where a huge ‘food and drink village’ is specially built.

Over the years the festival has drawn names as diverse as Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsay, Fergus Henderson, Michel Roux, John Torode and even Bill Wyman! 

The MFDF awards are recognised as the most important in the region. This year’s awards will be presented at the Gala Dinner taking place on 8TH October.
