Abergavenny Food Festival is held annually on the third weekend of September. The next event will be held on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd September 2024.

Enjoy over one hundred and fifty exhibitors across seven venues offering an unrivalled selection of the best produce and products from Monmouthshire, the Marches, Wales, and further afield. Then there's the rolling programme of talks, dems and debates. Watch top-notch chefs in action on the stage in the Victorian Market Hall, or cooking over fire in the grounds of the Castle. Drop into the Dome for some equally fiery debates with leading figures in the food world.

The Festival also has some special individually ticketed events, including Drinks Theatre Tutored Tastings and the atmospheric Party at The Castle, with live bands and great eats.

The following tickets are now on sale at ‘Strollers’ (which give access to six venues, over 180 exhibitors, demonstrations, talks and children’s activities), Party at The Castle, and Night Market. The full guest line-up will be announced by 1 July when tickets will also go on sale for Drinks Theatre tutored tastings, and Meet The Author sessions. All tickets are to be sold in advance.
