Rhubarbarians assemble – Wakefield’s celebration of its most famous vegetable, the Rhubarb Festival, will return next year to paint the city pink for three days from 21 – 23 February 2025.

One of the first food and drink festivals in the national calendar, it promises to start things off with a bang!

The all-important food and drink market will return with over 50 chalets where you can sample and purchase local and regional delights. Stalls include everything from the finest gins, jams, pickles, cheese, baked goods and so much more!

Families will love the variety of workshops on offer at the Rhubarb Festival, and the array of children activities available and lively street entertainment. Expect a whole new programme of chef demos and expand your culinary skills.

Finally, extend your stay with the Rhubarb Food & Drink Trail around the city, showcasing restaurants and bars putting on rhubarb themed food and drink throughout the weekend!
