The 25th Manchester Food and Drink Festival will be taking place Thu 15 Sep – Mon 26 Sep, promising to pull out all the stops for the special anniversary edition.

As always, the festival will showcase the most innovative and exciting food talent in the region right now, while also celebrating the incredible journey that Manchester’s food and drink scene has taken throughout the last 25 years.

The 25th anniversary Festival Hub will be the biggest yet as it continues its annual residency on Cathedral Gardens. The free to enter, pop up food and drink village will include a huge beer bar, wine and gin bar, streetfood, artisan food market, masterclasses, banquets and live music.

There will be more events taking place outside the Festival Hub in 2022 as MFDF plans to bring a packed programme of activity to restaurants, bars and extraordinary venues across Greater Manchester. There will be a focus on bringing back some of the best events and chefs from the past 25 years and an extra special programme of pillar events with one Festival spectacular planned for each night of MFDF.

Sustainability will also be a key focus across the entire Festival as MFDF plan to make this the most sustainable festival yet. Panel talks, zero waste and budget cooking classes and a completely plastic-free Festival Hub will all be focused on recycling, reducing and reusing.

Thu 15 Sep - Mon 26 Sep, Various locations
