Events

Newcastle and Gateshead are at the centre of a foodie revolution, and boast a packed food events calendar to satisfy taste-chasing tourists from near and far.

With a well-established restaurant scene, a blossoming street food culture and a legendary reputation for nightlife thanks to our proper Geordie pubs and stylish bars the North East is the place to be if you’re looking for a good meal - so much so, that food events in Newcastle and Gateshead are making days, and even weekends of it!

Hawker Market at By the River Brew Co. is a must visit on summer weekends, offering up the finest selection of street food from independent traders. Where better to enjoy a cool craft beer and some tasty food than nestled under the iconic Tyne Bridge?

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a food critic, then the ever-popular food battle events at Wylam Brewery are for you. Eat your way around the mouth-watering street vendors, then help crown the city’s most delicious burger, pizza, tacos and much more at one of the many themed events.

Newcastle Restaurant Week has long been a key date in the foodie calendar, where you can head to any of the region’s top restaurants to sample their menus at fantastic discounted prices.

You don’t have to venture far for something with more of a party vibe; the Newcastle Gin Festival is ideal for those who enjoy a tipple whilst the Tynemouth Food Festival gives visitors a chance to pick up fresh, local produce whilst admiring the beautiful north east coast.

There are also plenty of opportunities to sample sweet treats and savoury eats at the weekly Quayside Market which takes place every Sunday, or experience world cuisine cooked up by local independents at Newcastle’s vibrant shipping container destination Stack. Newcastle Christmas Market is not to be missed, which visits during the holidays to offer up seasonal treats and gifts.
