Look out for Caribbean specials at the Jerk Jam Festival, Thai treats at the annual Southampton Thai Festival and an array of Asian delights at the Southampton Mela Festival.

Sample some local fare at The Big Eat at Royal Victoria Country Park and look out for events such as beer tastings at Steam Town Brew Co, in Eastleigh. 

Often during the summer, there are pop-up events at Westquay Shopping Centre that feature food or drink and be sure to check out the Southampton Christmas Market in December for stalls selling German sausages and beer. 

Food and drink events in Portsmouth and Southsea

A popular month-long celebration in Portsmouth and Southsea’s calendar is the Southsea Food Festival. The festival takes place in June and July, featuring cookery demonstrations, markets, celebrity events and food tastings all over town.

Look out for other food and drink events, many of which take place on Southsea Common such as the Southsea Thai Festival. 

Food and drink events in Winchester

One of the biggest food events in Winchester’s calendar is the annual Foodies Festival, usually held in North Walls Recreation Ground for a few days in July, this festival brings cookery demonstrations from a star-studded line up.

Food and drink events in the New Forest 

Priding itself on its local fare, the New Forest is no stranger when it comes to food and drink events.
