Festival of Food, Drink and Rhubarb
The festival this year has even more tasty treats and entertainment planned than ever before.
The festival which will be in its eighth year takes place in Wakefield City centre and runs from 10am - 5pm on Friday and Saturday and 10am - 4pm on the Sunday.
The festival was established in 2007 and in 2013 attracted over 120,000 visitors from across the country, with visitors being invited to sample a variety of fine festival foods.
Wakefield is part of the Wakefield - Morley - Rothwell rhubarb growing triangle and the plant has played an important part of the local economy for over 150 years.
Wakefield’s famous rhubarb has joined the hallowed ranks of Europe’s protected foods, with the same status as Champagne and Parma Ham.
The festival showcases some of the region’s tastiest foods and most talented chefs from across the country, with cookery demonstrations, street food, walks and tours and a deliciously Yorkshire Market combined with street entertainment.
