Following the success of last year's inaugural Taste Salisbury, the ten-day celebration of food and drink will return to the city this summer and Salisbury BID levy payers are being encouraged to get involved.
There will be a programme of events, special promotions and discounts held across the city centre from 26th August, all of which will showcase the delicious local and regional food and drink on offer here.
Salisbury BID is joining Experience Salisbury and Salisbury City Council to produce the exciting city-wide feastival once again, which will culminate in Foodie Sunday on 4th September.
As preparations begin, a call is also going out to ALL businesses in Salisbury city centre – not just food and drink venues – to get involved. Those who want to be part of the festivities can put on their own events or create special Taste Salisbury promotions, such as themed menus or discounts.

Artisan Wines and Spirt Co took part in the festival last year. Co-owner and Salisbury BID Director, Elizabeth Coombes, said: “This year Taste Salisbury is set to be bigger and better than 2021 with a huge array of events planned. Having taken part last year with three events, I would absolutely encourage other Salisbury businesses, large and small, to join in. It’s such a great way of bringing the city together, getting businesses to work together and showing off all the amazing things Salisbury has to offer. Who doesn’t love food and drink??”
New for 2022
This year, businesses are being invited to take part in Foodie Sunday. There will be pitches available and a live cooking station that can be used for demonstrations. The 2022 festival programme will also include the addition of the Taste Salisbury Awards. Levy-payers will be able to showcase their food and drink quality in five categories:
Winners will be determined by a public vote which will take place through the Experience Salisbury website from 26th August to Saturday 3rd September. The winners will then be announced during a ceremony as part of Foodie Sunday.
Dan Collins, Salisbury BID Business Manager said: “Our food and drink venues, producers and sellers are an important part of city life and we think that’s something to celebrate. We hope even more businesses will get involved this year, with events and special promotions just some of the ways they can take part in the festivities. We are also looking forward to introducing the Taste Salisbury Awards, which will recognise Salisbury's hardworking food and drink companies and their employees in a new fun way. Watch this space for more information!”

In partnership with VisitWiltshire, Salisbury BID co-fund the Visit Salisbury website to promote the city to visitors. The Visit Salisbury website has a full events calendar for Salisbury.
