Wells Food Festival

Wells Food Festival is a Community Interest Company, a type of limited company set up for the benefit of the local community.

The Festival aims to celebrate and promote the best of Somerset’s artisan food and drink.


Promoting the finest local artisan food and drink producers and their products.

Encouraging families to include more fresh food in their cooking, to learn more about the land and how their food is produced, and to understand the challenges faced by small producers.


The Festival brings many benefits to the local economy by:

◊ promoting the area’s diverse range of artisan food and drink – over 150 traders showcased their products last year

◊ enhancing the image of the City as a great tourist destination

◊ attracting people of all ages and social groups – over 15,000 people came to last year’s event


The Festival has built relationships with many local partners, including producers,
businesses, schools and community groups.


Visitors are admitted free and we aim to keep fees for stallholders to a minimum.

Our main source of income comes from local sponsors, whose generous support funds the event.
