Our Story

The Local Food Festival brand started life back in 2016 after having successfully held The Surrey Food festival at old deer park, Richmond. Since then additional festivals have been added to the calendar with, The Middlesex Food Festival in 2018, Chilli & Beer Festivals in 2019 and now additional venues for 2020.

The Local Food Festival is the brain child of Steve O’Neill who with his likeminded team have the same vision to bring local communities together for an affordable family-friendly, exciting fun-filled event.

The Local Food festival offer 5 key sections to bring you their own brand of food festival:

  1. A demo tent for top chefs, food writers and drink connoisseurs to show off their skills, tempt you with new concepts and answer questions to share their knowledge.
  2. Our marketplace marquee offers you the chance to purchase a variety of food and drink-related products to take home with you.
  3. A main stage gives local bands the chance to showcase their musical vocals as well as local dance schools to show off their talents.
  4. The kids zone offers a safe environment for them all to have a bounce and enjoy our rides while the parents sit and relax and digest the days food and drinks.
  5. Our Chilli themed festivals along with offering a wrath of chilli themed foods and drinks also provides a marquee for the Chilli Comedy Club, allowing the adults to enjoy fun and laughter from comedians throughout the day.

So if you are wanting to have an affordable family day out look no further and jump onto our contact page, send us an email and we will add you to our mailing list so we can update you with offers and all the upcoming events that The Local Food Festival will be hosting

It's in the name really. At their heart all of our events are about creating something by local people for the local people. And as part of that we like to support our community as much as possible.⁠
⁠
It's become a tradition for us to have local dance schools perform at our festivals, and the Surrey Chilli Festival is no different.⁠
⁠
We are delighted to have two amazing dance schools with us, @kidzgottalent and @resolutiondance.⁠
⁠
These kids are true pros! Make sure you catch them in action this weekend at Walton on Thames Cricket Club! 💃⁠
