  • The Festival Village on Christchurch Quay
NEW FOR 2019
Christchurch Food Festival is committed to playing its part in tackling the growing environmental crisis caused by unwanted plastics.
This year, with your help, the Festival has made the decision to reduce single use plastics, so food traders will now be required to use compostable cutlery, cups, plates and packaging. This will allow us to dispose of the inevitable food waste and service ware in a greener way.
