Some 50,000 people are expected to flock to the town  to see Kent producers showcasing their produce and take part in a packed programme of events.

Chefs from Taste of Game and isle businesses will also demonstrate their skills.​

Produce on offer will include raw milk, organic vegetables, sourdough bread, Kent cheeses, pickles and preserves alongside award winning beers, ciders, spirits, and delicious freshly cooked street-food.

​Since the festival began in 2009, the organisers have aimed for it to celebrate and promote the amazing variety, quality and abundance of food and drink produced in Kent and to encourage people to buy local produce in the shops, farm shops and other farmers markets.

The festival  also offers the opportunity to meet the producers of that wonderful cheese – or the baker of your speciality bread and pastries.

Entry to the festival is free and people are asked to try and pop a pound in one of the many collection pots to help fund this and future events.
