New for 2018 is a brand new festival for Chelmsford celebrating and supporting the City’s thriving food and drink scene.
Running from 1 – 10 March, the Chelmsford Restaurant Festival will be celebrating the diverse range of restaurants and food available in our community, while offering people an opportunity to try restaurants or cuisines they may not usually, plus experience special events.
Organised by Chelmsford City Council’s award-winning Events and Engagement Team, the festival is designed to not only showcase thriving well-established restaurants but also to encourage and provide support to lesser-known and newer businesses.
The festival will be made up of two parts: Festival Menus and Restaurant Experiences.
Throughout the festival, participating restaurants will offer an exclusive, set price ‘Festival menu’ which will showcase certain elements of their restaurant and its cuisine. The menus are priced at £15 per person with either a two-course or three-course menu. It’s hoped this will encourage people to try new foods and restaurants they haven’t tried before.
As well as the set price menus, many of the restaurants taking part will also hold special events throughout the festival including talks, cooking demonstrations, eating challenges and arts.
