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.

There are festivals to tickle every taste bud and quench every thirst with all our favourite flavours, food and beverages catered for!

Whether you're partial to a refreshing Gin and tonic or enjoy sipping a cool pint of beer, craft ale or cider - there is a festival for you. Whatever your tipple, find out where you can sample the finest, award-winning drinks or test out the most unusual flavours from the likes of The Gin Festival to The Rum Festival and The Bathtub Sessions Gin Festival.

Gateshead Beer and Music Festival is a staple in the region. It began in 2010 with the emphasis on creating a great local community festival. Moving forward seven years the festival has grown into an event that is loved both locally and nationally.

Newcastle Foodies Festival, launching for the first time in 2017, not only offers plenty of tasting opportunities with an impressive artisan food market but also provides chance to watch Michelin star chefs and MasterChef winners cooking their favourite recipes and giving you top tips.
