Designed to be a truly inclusive event for the Bradford community.

Bradford’s newest outdoor food and drink festival, Taste:BD, promises to be a celebration of local culture in the heart of the city.

Taking place on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 April 2023, the festival will celebrate the very best of Bradford’s food, drink and entertainment scenes.  

Taste:BD will be held across two central locations in Bradford city centre, Centenary Square and City Park.

City Park’s mirror pool will play host to the heart of the festival’s site, featuring a range of delicious food stalls, craft markets, family-friendly live entertainment, a cooking masterclass tent and a kid-friendly area jam-packed full of activities.

The site will be transformed into a beautiful, vibrant and welcoming space for everyone to enjoy, with newly rejuvenated carnival floats from Bradford’s proud festival heritage serving as giant centrepieces to the festival.  

Meanwhile, Centenary Square will play host to some of the best bars and breweries in the area, with live DJ sets running later into the evening providing the best tunes to get you dancing to.

With over 40 food and drink partners taking part, guests can expect a vibrant selection of street food, drinks and arts to enjoy over the weekend.

Nicola Greenan, Strategic lead for City of Culture, Policy and Events from Bradford Council said: “We’re really excited to be hosting Taste:BD for the first time and welcoming people from near and far into Bradford to experience this cultural celebration.

“With most of the food and drink vendors being from either Bradford or the surrounding areas, this makes us even more looking forward to showcasing the culinary delights Yorkshire has to offer. With the Super Soapbox Challenge also happening in the city centre on Sunday 30th April, the weekend promises to be one not to be missed.” 

The City Park side of the festival will be running from 12pm- 6pm on Saturday 29, and from 11am – 6pm on Sunday 30, with the Centenary Square side of the festival open till 10pm both days to ensure everyone can secure their bank holiday tipple.
