Shrewsbury Food Festival first opened its doors in 2014 as a way to highlight the extraordinary food scene in Shrewsbury and offer economic support for the local players, but has since then been a big draw from gourmet fans to come from all around the Midlands. The festival has proudly worn the crown of the Best Food Festival in the Midlands for three years in a row. The Shrewsbury Food Festival occurs every summer over a two-day weekend in June at the town’s Quarry. Visitors can purchase beer, spirits, juice, smoothies, artisanal goods, desserts and confectionary, and meals on offer. Food fans can take this one step further and sign up for chef’s school, or see cool demos.
