More than 100 traders confirmed for Seaham Food Festival

Super scotch eggs, dirty fries, local fudge and cookie pies are on the menu for this year’s Seaham Food Festival.

Durham County Council, which organises the festival, has confirmed some 120 traders from County Durham and beyond for this year’s event, which takes place Saturday August 5 and Sunday August 6.

Alongside the familiar faces that regular festivalgoers will recognise, there’ll be more than 20 new traders selling everything from cocktails and gins to cheese and chilli jams. There’ll be plenty of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy free options too, plus handmade dog treats for four-legged festivalgoers.

Cllr Elizabeth Scott, Durham County Council’s Cabinet member for economy and partnerships, said: “We’re so proud to host stalls from the region’s finest food and drink producers and we know people are always eager to see if their favourites will be there. We’ve got another mouth-watering line-up, with Sicilian street food, Thai curries, Greek gyros and more than 20 flavours of sausage, as well as sweet treats such as Turkish delight, brownies and cupcakes.

“It’s great to see that so many Seaham and County Durham-based traders will be there too. The festival gives them such a brilliant opportunity to get in front of new customers and raise their profile. We cater for all kinds of tastes. There’s an A to Z list of traders, plus a handy site map, on the Seaham Food Festival website with vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy free options all clearly labelled to make it easy for people to find their favourites.”

The event also has a packed schedule of cookery demonstrations with celebrity chefs, family entertainment and live music. Visit for all the information.
