Eat Cambridge 2019: Saturday 11 May to Sunday 26 May

Eat Cambridge’s festival fringe is a two-week, jam-packed programme of exciting, educational and downright tasty food and drink fringe events organised and run by local indies.

With a huge variety of food and drink themed events taking place throughout the city and beyond at pop-up venues, restaurants, cafes and bars, it’s set to be a busy fortnight for local foodies!

Here you’ll find the festival fringe programme, and full details about our official Eat Cambridge fringe events and how to book your tickets. Check here for updates on other fringe events, too – this is where we’ll let you know about sell-outs or last minute changes.
