September events: Celebrate the golden age of beer in Kent

Faversham, Kent

The Faversham Hop Festival is a unique family event that commemorates the golden days of hop-picking with two days of live music, dancing, great food and hops, hops, hops!

Don a festive hop garland in the beautiful market town Faversham where the town centre will be filled with over 40,000 revellers between 1-2 September. There will be live music across three stages, with plenty more fun in pubs around the town. The family fun area provides entertainment and rides for our younger visitors, with market stalls to browse as well as exhibitions and activities celebrating the heritage of the 800-year-old hop.

Great camping options are available for those who don’t want to miss a minute of the fun, with pitches starting from £10 per night. If you're looking for a good alternative to standard festivals, make sure you check out the Faversham Hop Festival!
