DORSET STREET FOOD FESTIVAL IS HEADING TO POOLE'S BAITER PARK

Dorset Street Food Festival finally returns after a 2 year break and this time is heading to Poole! Hosting over 20 of the most delicious street food traders from across the UK, the festival is taking place from Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th September in Baiter Park, Poole (BH15 1TQ). There’ll be plenty of quality street food on offer; from Italian, Malaysian and American, to Moroccan, Mexican, Afghan and Spanish you’ll be spoilt for choice! Running from 11am - 11pm daily, you’ll be able to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert all in one place!  And do you want to know the best thing? General entry is FREE! If you want a family friendly, food filled, good vibed day out, then look no further than Dorset Street Food Festival.

The last time the festival took place was in 2019 just down the road in the lovely Lyme Regis! With the long two year break we’ve found a new, amazing location to host this year's event which will now take place in the beautiful coastal town of Poole! The festival is set to be the largest and no doubt tastiest yet, and being just a stone's throw from Poole Quay and hosting harbourside sea views in Baiter Park, the change in venue really is a great move!

We, Street Food Warehouse, are the company behind this festival and also run street food festivals across the Welsh and South West coasts. From Devon to Swansea and Cornwall to Aberystwyth, we have cemented our reputation hosting deliciously successful events for over 5 years and are so excited to bring our #summerofstreetfood tour to the sunny shores of Poole!

To keep everyone safe the event will be ticketed, with attendees scanning a barcode at the entrance. But fear not, general entry tickets are FREE!!! Anyone can order tickets for their friends and family and even get a queue jump to pass the crowds. Tickets can be found at the bottom of this page.

Carnivores, veggies and vegans alike will all be able to share the fine feast and best Insta-worthy bites the South has to offer! Gluten-Free? That doesn’t mean you’ve got to miss out, most traders offer options for all eaters! Sweet tooth? There’ll be enough tempting treats to make your dentist weep. How does a cheeky, chocolate brownie box from Chock Shop sound? Or maybe a biscoff salted caramel stick waffle from Nomad Waffles will do the trick? What about Churros dipped in chocolate? Whatever food you fancy, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten the need to quench your thirst! The event is joined by a brand new sponsor, Freedom Brewery, who will be supplying refreshing draft beers, poured from ice cold taps all weekend long. Serving the drinks are Pop Up Bar Hire Co who will be fully stocked, serving everything from zesty mojitos and sparkling pink gin, to apple juice and San Pellegrino. Whatever food you choose, they’re sure to have a drink to match!
