The Food & Drink Stage



A massive welcome to the virtual River Carnival


We’re so sad we can’t be with you in the streets and on the Wye this year. We’ll see you in 2021.


But we hope we have created the next best thing.


A virtual Carnival featuring online performances from some Carnival favourites and some new friends.


Click on a stage and scroll on through and take a look at what you fancy. Just like you’d do on River Carnival Day.



Herefordshire is synonymous with great food & drink made by passionate independent producers. The indie food scene has long been associated with the River Carnival through our popular Indie Food Village on Castle Green. Here some of our foodie friends showcase what they do.
