THE CORNWALL STREET FOOD FESTIVAL 2024 IS EXPECTED TO RETURN TO NEWQUAY OVER THE MAY BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND IN 2024. SAMPLE SOME OF THE BEST CORNISH STREET FOOD ON THE MARKET AT THIS EPIC GASTRO EVENT…
What are you doing over the four-day May bank holiday weekend 2024 in Cornwall? Surfing? Walking? Sunbathing? Or stuffing your cakehole with some of the best street food in the South West? ‘Cos we know what we’re doing…
The Cornwall Street Food Festival 2024 could return to Newquay for its third edition at the end of May 2024. It has been running for the previous two years at the stunning Barrowfields cliffs off Lusty Glaze Road, which are historic cliffside fields with gorgeous views of the sea. There are traditionally at least 20 traders who serve up mouthwatering street food and cool drinks alongside some great live entertainment at this tasty festival.
The 2023 edition of the festival was a big success. Between 11am and 10pm on each of the four days during the May bank holiday, the festival was divided into ‘four mouthwatering portions’. There were churros, gyros, Afghan street food, burgers and local seafood. There were also plenty of veggie, vegan and gluten-free offerings alongside the treats for carnivores and the sweet dessert dishes.
Plus, the event was sponsored by Fourpure Brewing Co who not only sold craft beer but also supported the live entertainment stage that was on site throughout the bank holiday weekend.
And the best bit? Drumroll… general entry to the festival is free! Or, at least, it was in 2022 and 2023. We must stress that this event is not yet confirmed for 2024 but as soon as it is we will let you know all the details!
But, when it is confirmed, all you do need to grab a ticket to enter on the event website beforehand, even though it’s free. There are traditionally paid options too, including ‘queue jumping’ tickets and beers upon arrival. The event has always been organised by the Street Food Warehouse.
So prepare to stuff yourself silly with fine street food while you take in the stunning Newquay cliffside vistas and enjoy the live entertainment over the May bank holiday weekend 2024 in Cornwall (if it goes ahead!). Bon appetit!
