Highcliffe Food & Arts Festival
Highcliffe Food Festival is a two-day event which started in 2014. It was decided that the street needs reviving - so local members of the community got together with no other agenda than to create something special and unique for the village. The event is organised and run by a committee of unpaid volunteers celebrating local and regional food and drink and takes place on or near the first weekend in June. It is a not-for-profit organisation and any money generated goes back in to the festival to improve it year after year!
The aims of the festival:
To promote local food producers, independent restaurants and retailers in Highcliffe.
To provide educational and fun workshops and cookery demonstrations to encourage people to eat healthy, homemade and locally sourced food.
To establish Highcliffe as a destination and to promote the surrounding area and beaches for tourism.
To transform the village street and recreation area during the festival with activities for all ages to enjoy.
