The Food Calendar

Welcome to 87Food’s Food Calendar!

There’s so many food related days, weeks and months in the UK every year that we wanted to share them with you, so you don’t miss out on a golden opportunity to promote your bar, restaurant, hotel, cafe or product!

Whether you want to get involved in discussions on Twitter using the relevant hashtags i.e. #ChocolateWeek or you want to celebrate the special day, week or month inside your establishment, this Food Calendar includes everything you need to know.

Our Food Calendar is updated monthly but if you know of an event that is missing from our list, please leave a comment below and we’ll add it!
