This year's Hop Festival takes place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd September
This lively and popular event, set in the beautiful medieval heart of Faversham, 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.
In addition, there are special tours of Shepherd Neame - Britain’s oldest brewer, a home of the hop exhibition in The Old Brewery Store, a traditional funfair and family area plus a street market and a fantastic array of Kentish food and drink – including beer produced in the town, local cider and Kentish apple juice.
We would like to thank Shepherd Neame and Swale Borough Council for their fantastic support for the festival.
See you in September 2017!
