Bristol Food Connections


May 1st – 11th marks the first ever Food Connections event in Bristol – a citywide festival that aims to showcase the diversity of food and drink that the city has to offer. As part of the programme, you can enjoy the Bristol Food Connections Festival – a giant food celebration taking place across the Bank Holiday weekend that sees Millennium Square, The Amphitheatre, College Green, Queen Square and Waterfront Square turned into a giant weekend-long food celebration with something for everyone. Area by area, here’s a quick guide…


First Great Western Producers’ Market @ The Amphitheatre (May 3rd – 5th, 10am – 6pm)

Take plenty of spending money! The Amphitheatre on Bristol’s Harbourside will be transformed into a great showcase of the South West’s finest food and drink producers, allowing you to buy directly from producers and growers.


Slow Food Forgotten Foods Market & Pizzeria @ College Green (May 3rd – 5th, market from 10am to 6pm, pizzeria from 11.30am – 8pm)

Slow Food International will be hosting a pop-up pizzeria on College Green, with top Italian pizza chefs creating great pizza feasts for all. In addition, there will be a neighbouring Forgotten Foods market, with around 25 producers from across the UK who will be selling endangered and forgotten foods.


Street Food Festival @ Millennium Square, Harbourside (May 3rd – 5th, 10am to 6pm)

Street food has been huge in London for a while, with permanent street food markets all over the city. Here in Bristol it’s still a fairly new scene in comparison, so head over to Millennium Square to try some great dishes from all over the world.


Organix Family Area @ Anchor Square, Harbourside (May 3rd – 5th, 10am to 6pm)

The perfect place to take children at the weekend! They’ll be able to enjoy various crafts, plant their own vegetables, learn about fruit and veg and enjoy story time – as well as getting a Goodies Explorer bag. There will also be cooking workshops with the National Trust, planting workshops and more.


If you’re still going after this lot, head over to Queen Square. Eat Drink Bristol Fashion has now begun, and you’ll be able to enjoy tapas and a tipple in the tipis without the need to book…
