Exeter is to host its first Street Food Festival in Northernhay Gardens in June, offering the chance to try cuisines from around the world.

It’s taking place over three days, from Friday, June 14 until Sunday 16.

The event is being run by Street Food Warehouse, who’ve been organising similar festivals for seven years around Wales and the South West.

They say no two traders at the Exeter Street Food Festival will be offering the same cuisine, so there is a huge range of dishes from different countries and cultures: Indian, Vietnamese, Thai, Moroccan, Mexican, Afghan, Caribbean and Uzbek.

There will also be a licensed bar, market stalls and live entertainment.

Street Food Warehouse said: “We’ve wanted to host more festivals in the South West as the people of Devon have proved they have a huge appetite for delicious, high-quality food.

“For the past few years, our festivals have taken us to Newquay, Plymouth and North Devon and it only feels right Exeter enjoys a slice of the action.

“Vendors apply from across the UK to trade at our events, allowing us to share new and exciting cuisines and provide a platform for up-and-coming talents on the food scene. Visitors can tuck into fan favourites or discover something entirely new, all whilst enjoying a refreshing draft craft beer and some live music in the heart of the city!

“Exeter Street Food Festival will be the perfect place to spend your weekend with friends and family enjoying delicious food and good vibes. We hope to get a good turnout in our first year so that we can come back again and again. Don’t forget it’ll also be Father’s Day weekend, so why not treat Dad or Grandad to some delicious food and a pint? Get ready for full bellies and great memories!”

Among the traders lined up are Exeter-based Gourmet Street Kitchen, offering fresh-to-order mac and cheese with extra flavours including homemade harissa, chorizo and caramelised onions; Miz Street Food offering Mexican tacos, and Dawlish ice cream makers The Local Scoop. The event will be sponsored by the award-winning brewery Lost and Grounded. 

Street Food Warehouse prides itself on a continued commitment to sustainability, so every adult ticket purchase includes a reusable cup to reduce single-use plastic.

Tickets are £2 plus booking fee, and admission is free for under 18s. Tickets will be available on the gate, but pre-booking is advised.
