A pop-up street food festival with a chilled vibe will bring tastes from around the world to Huddersfield town centre.
‘HuddersFeast – Get Your Feast On 2023’ will be a relaxed three-day street food event, organised by Huddersfield BID, the town’s Business Improvement District.
The event will be held in St George’s Square on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 22, 23 and 24.
Entry is free and visitors can stop off for a casual bite to eat and a drink or two while enjoying everything else the town centre has to offer. It’s very much an informal, family event with something for everyone.
The full line-up of food and drinks vendors is still to be announced but there will be over 10 food trucks in attendance including flavours from Mexican, Levantine, Portuguese and Italian cuisines.
The Braizin Squad will be serving up a treat at HuddersFeast
Here are some of the confirmed food and drink vendors:
- Braizin’ Squad: Braised, roasted and fire-cooked meats
- Good Boy Burger: Smash burgers
- Pizza Loco: Neo-Neapolitan pizza
- Spuds & Bros: Canadian poutine
- MorMor: Levantine-inspired mezze and small plates
- Luigi Street Food: Italian panzerotti and arancini
- Mario’s Mobile Kitchen: Portuguese cuisine
- Rabbit Hole Coffee: Proper good coffee
Visitors also have the option to go to the Head of Steam for their favourite tipple as the venue is offering takeout cups.
There will be roaming acoustic musicians and performances across the event too, including the Jelly Roll band on Friday night and Sunday afternoon.
Sunday will have a focus on families with fun-filled activities for children including face-painting, a magician, a balloon artist and giant lawn games.
Huddersfield BID manager Sam Sharp says the event promises to be a laid-back, late summer highlight and added: “HuddersFeast is a pop-up street food festival where people can just kick back and chill.
“The event will have a relaxed atmosphere where people can drop in, try some deliciously tasty food and then go off and enjoy everything that the town centre has to offer, be that shopping, culture and the arts or the many hospitality venues.
“HuddersFeast is all about the food and the emphasis is on trying different cuisines from around the world. Savoury or sweet there’s bound to be something to tickle your tastebuds!
“We want people to be coming and going all the time and would encourage them to explore Huddersfield town centre and find their new favourite places.”
Delicious food from MorMor will leave you wanting…more!
HuddersFeast – Get Your Feast On 2023 is the latest in a series of events, organised by Huddersfield BID, which have brought thousands of people into the town centre.
In June, the sci-fi festival and comic convention Get Your Geek On had people thronging the streets. Official figures show that footfall was 132,910, a 9% increase on the same day last year.
And running throughout August is the popular – and free to enter – Huddersfield Lego Trail with three chances to win £50-worth of Lego. Find out more about Huddersfield Lego Trail HERE.
Huddersfield BID is a non-profit, levy-payer-funded organisation which promotes Huddersfield town centre.
