What is Foodstock LDN?

Foodstock LDN is a two day food festival celebrating local traders, craft beer & live music set in Battersea Park.

Foodstock LDN will be showcasing the latest street food flavours, craft beer and cocktail bars, a farmers’ market to stock up your pantry, plus a workshop tent with sessions run by local traders.

Sit back, relax and listen to the sweet sounds of live music from the beautiful bandstand.

The Wimbledon Corner will host a large screen to view the Wimbledon finals, as well as strawberries with cream, of course! The children’s area is run by Sharky and George with loads of fun activities, there is something for everyone!

Last year Foodstock LDN attracted an audience of 11,000 over the two days and we are well set up to accommodate that and more this year.

Foodstock LDN is produced by Enable Leisure & Culture.
