Street Food Circus 2016: it’s back!!

Omg you guys, it’s back! Following their success with the John Street circus last year, Street Food Circus are bringing their AWARD WINNING show back into town for a six-week run.

The launch weekend is 18 – 21 August, so if you’ve missed out on Green Man tickets because you were TOO SLOW, then console yourself by spending all weekend stuffing your face with delicious food and drink.


SFC is a movable feast of nomadic street food traders, vintage trailers, chefs and mixologists who’ve set up camp in Sophia Gardens Bute park, just minutes from Cardiff Castle and Cardiff Central Train Station. Last year the Street Food Circus won Best Street Food event in the UK! Pretty special.

‘Festivals, warehouses, yards, markets – we’ve done them all over the last five years,’ says Simon Thomas, director of Street Food Circus. ‘This summer we’re excited to bring our infamous collective back together to create an unrivalled dining destination that lives up to our name of Best Street Food event in the UK. Sophia Gardens is perfect location to eat alfresco, set amongst an urban oasis of lush greenery. Our aim is to create communal dining experiences that are big on vibes, deliciously different, and street food that is good enough to tweet. The hashtag is #SFC2016, by the way!”

Street Food Circus is an immersive dining experience like no other; a colourful outdoor food festival and night market. It will be open Thursday to Sunday, from 18 August through to 25 September.

Complete with a circus big top for communal dining, 20 rotating artisan food trucks and themed bars featuring the finest local craft ales and beers, this years event promises to be deliciously different.

Some reminders of what happened last year …
