With summer and (hopefully) sunny weather comes festival season - from music to film and, of course, food and drink.

If you’re looking to spend a weekend indulging in local produce and trying some new dishes and drinks, then take a look at these food and drink festivals coming soon to Yorkshire.

North Leeds Food Festival

(22-23 June, Roundhay Park, Mansion Ln, Leeds LS8 2HH)

This annual food and drink festival is back this month, and it’s set to be bigger than ever thanks to the full chef’s demo stage.

As well as learning tips of the trade, foodies can look forward to over 110 stalls serving street food and selling local wares.

There’s also plenty to keep the kids occupied, as well well a live entertainment.

Beer and Bread Festival

( 22-23 June, Fountains Abbey, Fountains, Ripon HG4 3DY)

The Beer and Bread festival is the first of its kind at Fountain Abbey

This new beer and street food festival – Beer and Bread – is a celebration of the Abbey’s food heritage and the two staples of the medieval monk’s diet, and is the first at this National Trust property.

In collaboration with Leeds Indie Food, the event will include food and drink from around the world, and it will take place beside Fountains Mill, the monastic home of beer and bread at Fountains Abbey.

The family-friendly weekend will feature local street food, a local brewery and bakeries, as well as games in the orchard.

There’ll also be a chance to learn about the history of the Mill, take a tour of the ruined monastic brewhouse and bakehouse, and have a go with dough at a family friendly bread workshop – which is hosted by Café 164 and is priced at £10 per person.

Wetherby Food Festival

(12-14 July, Lodge Lane, Wetherby LS22 5HA)
