Alconbury Weald will be hosting its first Food Festival from midday on Saturday 30 July. Urban&Civic has teamed up with Bohemia and Shift Momentum - who have hosted three successful Street Food Festivals in St Neots.

With an exciting array of delicious street food and drinks on Watch Office Green, as well as Zumba, glitter face painting, lawn games, children’s story telling, cookery demonstrations, a chilli eating challenge and live music, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy.

The following food trucks will be available from midday:

  • Appy Days: gourmet steak burgers, kebabs, hot dogs and fried chicken
  • Badgers Chilli Kitchen: sauces, relishes and seasonings
  • Chef Henry Hampshire: vegan pasta and pizza
  • Health Galery: traditional Turkish delight, baklava and olives
  • Ice Cream Van
  • Little Dutch Bites: fresh gourmet Poffertjes (mini pancakes)
  • The Horsebox: gourmet toasties
  • The MiniBar: cocktails
  • Welch Cakes: bakes and cakes
  • Yum Yum Foodies: noodles and paella

The event kicks off with a chance to work up an appetite with a fun Zumba workout with Carley Harvey of Clubbercise St Neots (12.15pm). This is followed by a chilli eating competition to challenge the taste buds (2pm) and a live cookery demonstration from Badgers Chilli Kitchen (3.30pm).  There will also be Storytime with Molly for little ones to enjoy throughout the day.

Rachel Arnold, Communities and Partnerships for Alconbury Weald, said: “We’re very excited to be hosting our first Food Festival. Since opening its bistro in the Watch Office last year, Bohemia has become a focal point of events and activities for the local community and its fantastic that they can bring the Street Food Festival, which has proved so successful in St Neots, to Alconbury Weald.

“Our Summer Saturday events have always been very popular and we’re hoping this will be the biggest and best to date!  The sunny weather is forecast to continue to the end of the month and the Street Food Festival is a great way to kick off the summer holidays.”

Christine Griffey, CEO of Shift Momentum and Co-Founder of Street Food Fest, said: “We are excited to be working with Urban&Civic to support them in bringing the first Food Festival to Alconbury Weald. After hosting three successful events in St Neots it is great to be working with like-minded organisations that see the importance of hosting community focused events and we are excited to be a part of that.”
