Festival guide

Below is a guide to beer festivals in or near Sheffield that we are aware of over the coming months. While we believe the information is correct, we advise checking with the venue/organisers before making any special journeys.

CAMRA festival listings can also be found on the national CAMRA events page and commercial festivals on aletalk.

Note events are still currently subject to some uncertainty around Covid and it is expected the government will make proof of being fully vaccinated a condition of entry to larger events from September.

Steel City Beer Festival On Tour

Wed 6 – Sat 9 Oct

We can’t organise our usual event at Kelham Island Museum this year so we’re taking it on tour around the Steel City instead – kind of! A whole list of pubs and breweries will be putting their own events on over the same week and we’ll be pulling the details together in one place so you can enjoy a few days exploring the city and visiting the participating venues to enjoy the different beers, ciders, food, music, scenery and atmosphere on offer!
