Food & Drink Festivals


There are numerous food and drink festivals throughout the year in Buxton most of which take place on the Pavilion Gardens promenade and Buxton Markets on the market place.

Buxton Food & Drink Festivals

The Pavilion Gardens host Food & Drink Festivals a few times during the summer, such as the night before Buxton Carnival. With a great atmosphere and delicious food & drink, join us on the promenade.


Buxton Night Food and Drink Festival

One of the most popular events at the Pavilion Gardens: the Buxton Night Food and Drink Festival! The event takes place outdoors on the promenade and indoors in the Octagon between 4pm and 11pm and features over thirty outdoor food and drink traders.

With some of the most delicious cuisines including Thai, Mexican, Paella, Barbeque and mouth-watering desserts alongside some of the finest real ales, ciders and wines to choose from, this event is one for the whole family.


Late Summer Food Festival

Alongside the regular traders, local and regional food and drink traders come together on the market place at a Saturday Buxton Market in late September. 9am-4pm.


Great Peak District Fair & Buxton Beer Festival

The Pavilion Gardens host the Great Peak District Fair with brilliant food, drink and entertainment over a weekend in early October. Located on the promenade, there is a selection of hot, delicious foods from all around the world and some of the finest, hand-crafted larger, cider and beer from around the region.

Musicians play throughout the day and children entertainers bring the old favourites such as Punch & Judy and balloon modelling. Other activities often include archery, falconry, fairground rides, donkey rides and ferret racing!

Alongside the food and drink there is an art, craft and jewellery fair to help you get started with your Christmas shopping.

2018 dates are Saturday 13th October, 10am-6pm and Sunday 14th October, 10am-5pm.
