Sophie Sherief, Director of Hereford Food Festival, has today confirmed that the popular event will return in 2021, despite this years event being cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

A post on the Hereford Food Festival’s Facebook page said:

“We were devastated to have to cancel what would have been our fourth year of the festival, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We should be gearing up to the three week final countdown now and its very hard to see June 13th gaining on me, and not having the nervous and excited feeling I am used to at this point.

HOWEVER – we are returning for 2021 and are pleased to confirm that The Hereford Food Festival is confirmed for the 5th and 6th June 2021 at Hereford Racecourse. We are now open for bookings for suppliers.

After three successful years and a “break” for our fourth year as COVID-19 sweeps the globe – we’ll be back with a BANG for 2021 and it’s set to be a fabulous day out for all the family with food, fun, music and more.

Nearly ALL the suppliers we had booked for 2020 have transferred to 2021, for which we are very grateful, and so we are almost full – BUT we are now opening the Gift Hall, Vegan and Vegetarian Hall, and the Farmers Market for NEW bookings.

So if you would like to be part of Hereford’s BIGGEST Festival and want to be part of our MASSIVE post Coronavirus celebration, pop us an email now at or slide into the DMs on social media and we’ll send you the info and the booking form.“
