Everything you Need to Know: The North Leeds Food Festival Returns for it’s Sixth Year This Weekend
The North Leeds Food Festival will be hosting a weekend of international food and drink at Roundhay Park on 14th and 15th May.

After two successful festivals in 2021 to celebrate their 5th anniversary, The North Leeds Food Festival will be returning to Soldiers’ Field, Roundhay Park this weekend on 14th-15th May.

Renowned for their diverse selection of internationally inspired, locally made cuisine, the festival boasts a variety of street food traders serving traditional Indian, Chinese, Italian, American and Thai dishes, alongside homely roasts, mac and cheese, and much more.

For those with a sweet tooth, dessert traders will also be available, serving hot churros, cookie dough, crepes, ice cream, and Japanese bubble waffles.

Attendees will find a whole host of sweet and savoury treats in an expanded Artisan Market – playing host to over 95 independent businesses and producers, they can expect to find cakes, cookies, brownies, chocolate, flapjacks and scones, alongside cheese, spices, meats, olives, chutneys and scotch eggs. Homeware, handmade crafts, original artwork and jewellery will all be on offer, alongside bottled alcoholic beverages.

For those wanting a drink in the sun, supporting a delicious menu of street food traders are independent bars and breweries from across Yorkshire, including new additions to the festival North Brewing Co., who will be suppling the main festival bar with their locally produced craft beer and ales. The festival will also be host to cocktail, wine, gin and rum bars.

Returning due to popular demand, The Cookery Theatre will be holding demonstrations from Yorkshire professional chefs all weekend. Hosted by Leeds Cookery School, performances are designed to educate and engage audiences of all abilities, and showcase each chef’s signature cooking styles.

The foodie family festival has also prepared a number of activities for the little ones, including magic shows on the hour, a traditional fun fair with rides and inflatable land, roaming street performances, and interactive Kiddy Cook lessons for all ages to get cooking.

The North Leeds Food Festival is partnered with charity MIND and will be helping to raise money for their Leeds team – in the past 6 years they have raised over £45,000 for Mind charities across Yorkshire.

With excellent transport links, and dogs welcome, thousands are expected to join the celebrations at Roundhay Park on May 14th and 15th.
