The mouthwatering menus have been revealed for the Midlands’ biggest free-to-enter food and drink festival.
The annual Colmore Food Festival, sponsored by law firm DWF, attracts more than 30,000 visitors each year. This year’s event takes place on Friday, July 5 and Saturday, July 6, in Victoria Square.
Arranged by Colmore BID, the Festival showcases the brilliant food, drink and hospitality venues in the area.
All food is capped at £4 and drinks at £5 at the Festival, ensuring visitors can enjoy a bite to eat or drink without breaking the bank.
Live music acts and wandering performers will make the Food Festival the perfect weekend for all the family.
Colmore Food Festival is continuing its ambition to become one of the most sustainable events in Birmingham with a mission to achieve zero waste to landfill and a total ban on plastic drinking straws.
Recycling experts First Mile will be at the Festival to offer advice on business sustainability and the latest recycling initiatives.
In addition to recycling stations, specialist sustainability schemes will include coffee recycling; where all coffee grounds will be recycled into pellets to use in wood-burners and stoves.
And food waste will be taken to a state-of-the-art plant where it can be recycled into renewable energy and nutrient-rich fertiliser.
Follow Colmore BID on social media for the latest announcements for this year’s Colmore Food Festival.
