Oxford to get its very first Sausage & Cider Festival


A festival celebrating all things sausage and cider is coming to Oxford.

The aptly named Sausage & Cider Festival will come to the city next year after proving popular with foodies and boozers across the country.

The one day festival will include live music, food – 12 types of sausage to be exact – and cider in more than 25 different flavours.

There will also be an on-stage chilli eating competition and a speed sausage eating contest.

Lee Brian, marketing manager for Sausage & Cider Festival, said: “Sausage and Cider Festival outdoors is one of those feel-good events with great music playing all day from DJs to Live bands including some great local acts we will be supporting.

“This along with a huge amount of cider flavours and great independent food operators from around the UK we are excited to have our event hosted in Oxford and outdoors for the very first time.”

The Sausage & Cider Festival will take place on Saturday, June 24 2023 in the grounds of Oxford Rugby Club.
