Shobdon Food and Flying Festival in north Herefordshire

Dates: 1st July 2018 - 2nd July 2018

Shobdon Airfield

Welcome to Herefordshire’s longest-running food event of its kind. Held in a small village in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, . Having outgrown our original showground, in 2013 we joined forces with Herefordshire Aero Club’s annual aviation weekend to form the Shobdon Food & Flying Festival which now takes place at the village’s historic airfield, originally built to train glider pilots in WW2. We think the combination of the best food and drink around, cooking demonstrations, bespoke arts and crafts, family entertainment and live music with an array of amazing aerial attractions and displays really does makes our event unique.

Run by a small team of volunteers, the Food Festival was set up to support local farmers and producers while raising money for good causes. It has grown into one of the region’s best-loved culinary events boasting around a hundred of the region’s finest food, drink and craft exhibitors. We pride ourselves on creating a relaxed family atmosphere within which our visitors and volunteers can enjoy the very best Herefordshire has to offer. All profits from the weekend are split equally between the Herefordshire Aero Club and the Shobdon Food Festival with all of the Food Festival’s share donated to charities and good causes.

Keep up to date with our plans  and see profiles of exhibitors and attractions as they are confirmed. Be sure to check back regularly for updates and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest news. You can also view photographs from last year’s event. If you are an exhibitor interested in attending, we now have an online application process. To apply, click here.

We will be open from 10am – 5pm . We promise a warm welcome and the finest food and drink imaginable plus a host of other attractions to tickle the tastebuds and stimulate the senses.
