Cambridge's very own proper food & drink festival
Two weeks every May

Celebrate our local independent food and drink scene

Eat Cambridge is an annual food and drink festival showcasing Cambridgeshire’s delicious independent food scene. Taking place for two weeks every May, the festival was founded in 2013 by three local food lovers and is organised and run entirely by volunteers.

Every year, Eat Cambridge’s Main Event and two-week fringe event programme feature the best, newest, and most exciting independent food and drink in the area.

In 2019, Eat Cambridge will take place on Saturday 11 May followed by two weeks of fringe events.
