The hot weather may be coming to an end but the foodie events are still in full force. We’ve put together a list of the best events coming up this autumn. Enjoy!
Oktoberfest (18th-31st October)
You could fly to Munich or you could have a slightly less authentic but seriously cheaper Oktoberfest experience right in London doorstep. This year, they’re holding a Halloween special in Finsbury Park where you’ll be able to sing along and dance on the benches, whilst digging into a Bratwurst and a German beer. There’ll also be a vast array of authentic German delicacies, in case the Bratwurst doesn’t take your fancy.
Entry Price: £0 -10 (depending on event day)
Location: Finsbury Park
Urban Food Fest (Every Saturday)
If you like street food then you’ll love Urban Food Fest too. Located in Shoreditch, this celebration showcases some of London’s best street food vendors alongside ciders, craft beers, unique cocktails and wine. And for all those wanting to channel their inner child, there’s loads of free games, including giant Jenga and Ping Pong. Plus it’s on every Saturday which means you can always go back for seconds!
