Without the sponsors the festival wouldnt be where it is today so we would like to say a HUGE thanks to them for making it happen!

Our festival was founded by two people but Beth and Andy quickly became cogs in a much-bigger wheel. 'Team Orange' is made up of many, many more people. There's more than 100 volunteers and there's also the core team of seven, who run the event.

But the ingenuity and hard-work of our sponsors is also essential. So we hope you'll take a minute or two to read up about the people who've made our event what it is.

Mercedes-Benz of Shrewsbury

A huge massive thanks to Mercedes Benz of Shrewsbury - this amazing team continue to support us year after year, and bring glitz and glam (in g-g-gorgeous vehicular form) to our festival. Including an amazing Shrewsbury Food Festival vehicle for us each year.

We know Mercedes-Benz believe in 'The Best or Nothing' and we are so thrilled that they have joined with the Shrewsbury Food Festival Team to create the best Festival in Shropshire!
