We are planning to stage another memorable Food and Drink event, building on the success of all previous festivals, the hard work of our events team over the year, our festival volunteers and, of course, the magical heart of Holmfirth, situated amongst the towering hills of the magnificent Pennines.

As always we will showcase the excellent food and drink the Holme Valley and surrounding areas has to offer.

With over 20,000 people visiting each day, we are offering our vendors access to the festival, along with the following benefits

Opening times are as follows:

Saturday 14th September – food stalls and children’s entertainment will be operational 10am – 6pm, with stalls in Towngate (by Holmfirth Bus Station) open until 8pm.
Sunday 15th September – trading hours are 10am – 5pm for all exhibitors.

Other benefits of working with us:

A listing in the official festival guide.

All exhibitors are included in a leaflet, showcasing a map of Holmfirth, the events, food demonstrations and vendors.

Social media support for your business

With a growing base of people watching what we do on social media (currently over 9,000 followers) we have a direct route to advertise your business to customers with an already vested interest in what you can offer; this targeted, intelligent advertising is a huge benefit to any business.

This team will be very active leading up to and over the weekend creating a huge social media buzz about the festival and your business.

None Compete Menu

Each stand will be asked to submit a full product list pre-event and we will, where possible, ensure that no official stands in the same zone will cross over on product – ensuring you the best possible opportunity for sales.

Live Music

Music and Entertainment for the festival is organised by JamFactory Music School. The festival’s main performance area is located in the Council Offices Car park next to the Library. The main stage is live and bustling from 12 noon onwards on both the Saturday and the Sunday of the festival and suits all types of acts including solos, duos, bands and larger groups. There is also a performance space in Towngate Car Park which is suitable for solo/duos.

We have various smaller areas also available for busking around the festival site, again suited to smaller acts. If you would like to perform during the Festival weekend then please get in touch with JamFactory via info@jamfactory.fun

Whether you’re a musician or a magician, a balloon twister or a boy band, a caricaturist or a clown we want to hear from you. During the festival weekend, we want to create an exciting buzz around Holmfirth, and we want you to be part of it!

We are taking applications from absolutely any type of street performer or act including; solo acoustic acts, bands, roaming performers, balloon artists, magicians, jugglers, contortionists and other street artists! Get in touch with JamFactory via info@jamfactory.fun for more information and to apply.

We will do our best to fit in larger performing acts but will have to factor this into where and when you are able to perform during the festival.

Holmfirth Food and Drink Festival will take place on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September 2024.

The festival is a non-profit organisation and every year profits are donated to local charities such as Full Life Church Food Bank. Therefore, we are unable to pay any performing acts, but we will be encouraging our visitors to recognise your talent and as a busker you are welcome to accept donations. We will provide you with a food voucher to spend anywhere on site.

If you have any questions, or would like to apply to perform at this year’s festival, contact JamFactory via info@jamfactory.fun 


Do you provide entertainment and would like to get involved at the Festival? We are always looking for entertainers to interact with visitors in the Family Zone, so let us know what entertainment you provide and how we can work together.


We are always looking for Volunteers to help keep the areas clean and tidy during the festival, so please do get in touch via email if you would like to ‘give back’ to the community.
