For the ninth year, Wakefield’s streets will be paved with rhubarb as the whole town celebrates its local food and drink from the Yorkshire region.

Pop along to the elegant cathedral precinct to catch the main events and meet your local rhubarb growers! Here you’ll also find cookery demonstrations, taster session and workshops – delicious. If you fancy a wander around the city you’ll discover lots of fringe and food events adding to the excitement surrounding the occasion. There will be lots of unique street entertainment too.

So put this date in your calendar if you want to explore Wakefield, eat luscious foods or are just a big fan of rhubarb – see you on February 17th!
