Fun in the sun as crowds flock to Shrewsbury Food Festival

The team behind the Shrewsbury Food Festival has hailed the success of this year’s event with figures indicating more than 27,000 people attended the two-day festival to enjoy some of Shropshire’s finest food and drink.

Visitors enjoyed glorious sunshine at the annual event, which took place in Quarry Park and at key points around town, with around 200 food, drink and craft stalls, as well as cookery demonstrations taking place across the weekend.

The annual festival, organised by Shropshire Festivals, is part of a wider set of events including Shropshire Kids Festival, Shropshire Pub at the Park and the upcoming Shropshire Oktoberfest, collectively attracting thousands of visitors from across the region and beyond. 

The events were made possible due to support from local businesses including Shrewsbury-based legal firm Aaron & Partners, which has sponsored this year’s full programme of Shropshire Festivals.

Stuart Haynes, Corporate and Commercial Partner, at Aaron & Partners, said: “We’re delighted to have sponsored the Shropshire Festivals for the second year running and the Shrewsbury Food Festival was a brilliant and delicious way to spend the weekend. 

“Our Shrewsbury-based teams have been attending the Food Festival and Oktoberfest for several years and have always found them to be fun and enjoyable events to experience with family, friends or colleagues. 

“It’s important for us as a business to play an active role in supporting the local communities in which we live and work, and partnering with Shropshire Festivals underlines our ongoing commitment to this region.

“It’s fantastic to be helping ensure the future of these fun-filled events and we’re proud to be supporting other local businesses to grow and succeed.”

Beth Heath, Director of Fun at Shropshire Festivals, said: “We’re really pleased that Aaron & Partners has continued its sponsorship of the series of events. It’s a great opportunity to bring the community together and the range of events we host means there’s something for everyone. 

“The turnout has been brilliant this year, and the sunshine at the Food Festival ensured a fun time was had by all. 

“The support from local businesses such as Aaron & Partners is vital to help us ensure the continued success and future growth of these events.”

Aaron & Partners worked with Shrewsbury College to provide a delicious brunch for Aaron & Partners’ VIP guests, with service provided by students from the college. 

Already this summer crowds have flocked to Shropshire Kids Festival, Shropshire Pub at the Park and the recent Shrewsbury Food Festival; with the final upcoming event Oktoberfest happening on 4th and 5th October.
