Set in the beautiful medieval heart of Faversham, this lively and popular event recalls the traditional festivities associated with the hop harvest and celebrates the town’s unrivalled hop heritage. Now one of the largest free street festivals in the south east, the event boasts plenty to see and do throughout the weekend with entertainment including live music on 5 stages, arts & crafts, Morris Dancers, street performers and processions.
We have the Hop Blessing and a traditional parade through the town, a traditional funfair and family area plus a street market full of stalls and a fantastic array of Kentish food and drink – including beer produced in the town, local cider and Kentish apple juice.
This is the festival"s 30th anniversary year, please come and celebrate with us.
