Get ready to tickle your taste buds as the “biggest Northern food festival” heads to Lincoln Castle for four days over Easter.
Chow Down food festival will bring its four-day Easter Extravaganza and Summer Weekender to Lincoln. The castle will host the event on Easter weekend from Friday, April 19 to Monday, April 22 starting at 11am each day. It runs up until 10pm Friday-Sunday and until 8pm on Monday.
The festival will then return between June 28-30.
There will be food and drink stalls and pop-ups, live music and general, family-friendly fun. Entry is priced at £3 (free for under 14s). Entry is free fee for Lincoln Castle annual pass holders (additional activities are payable). Access to Lincoln Castle will be via East Gate only for the duration of the weekend.
Additional children’s activities from Sneaky Kids are £3.50 per child. No dogs are allowed unfortunately (the next dog friendly event at the castle is June 15-16).
There will be an array of flavour and culinary delights for everyone ranging from three-time British Street Food Award finalists Wagyu Lookin’ At? (burgers celebrating Yorkshire Wagyu beef) to Los Antojitos (vegan and gluten free tacos).

Founder of Chow Down and Leeds Indie Food Simon Fogal said: “After the success of last years Chow Down, we wanted to bring the event to a second site, after a long look, we found Lincoln Castle and fell in love with the venue. Expect great tunes from our ever rotating DJs, cocktails, ales and a good range of soft drinks.
“We always aim to bring family friendly atmosphere, with the best street food we can find. We cater for all budgets and dietary requirements and we always encourage you to try something different.”
