Faversham Chilli Festival 2018
25th August 2018
After the success of 2017, we will be holding the Faversham Chilli Festival once again at the Abbey School. Entry by donation to Pilgrims Hospices and other local causes.
There will be lots of additions this time including performing arts from Faversham Fringe, horticultural talks, more live music and more local producers. Watch this space for more information!
Faversham Hop Festival
1st September 2018 - 2nd September 2018
Over the festival weekend we have over 60 bands and performers providing 70 hours of live music across 5 stages and entertainment via the 15 sides showcasing Morris and dance. Our 40 volunteers work over 600 hours in the lead up to and during the event, making sure that every one of the 40000 festival-goers has a great time. In total, it costs nearly £70000 to stage the Hop Festival each year. Did you know that if each person attending donated just £1 we'd be well on our way to achieving that?
Faverham Hop Festival is a not for profit organisation so if you think that all that entertainment is worth the price of a cuppa then please help us maintain this great festival.
Set in the beautiful medieval heart of Faversham, this lively and popular event recalls the traditional festivities associated with the hop harvest and celebrates the town’s unrivalled hop heritage. Now one of the largest free street festivals in the south east, the event boasts plenty to see and do throughout the weekend with entertainment including live music on 5 stages, arts & crafts, Morris Dancers, street performers and processions.
In addition, we have the Hop Blessing and a traditional parade through the town. There are also special tours of Shepherd Neame - Britain’s oldest brewer, a home of the hop exhibition in The Old Brewery Store, a traditional funfair and family area plus a street market full of stalls and a fantastic array of Kentish food and drink – including beer produced in the town, local cider and Kentish apple juice.
