At the 2021 Bedford River Festival, the Council Events Team is looking for the best of the catering industry to ensure that visitors have a wide variety of choice and quality products to enjoy across the site. A key focus for 2021 is the reduction of single use plastics and non-recyclables. Take a look at our Environmental Statement to see whether your business can support us in providing goods and services that fit within our ethos.
A limited number of catering pitches are still available. Please contact the Events Team ( email@example.com ) for more information.
The bars tender has now closed.
The confectionery/sweets tender has now closed.
The slush tender has now closed.
Bedford Borough Council uses an online tendering process for catering, bar, confectionery and slush pitches. You can find out how to tender on our downloadable In-Tend guide and use our handy checklist to guide you through the process.
The 2021 River Festival will include countless river activities, six live music and performance stages, the Arts, Heritage and Sports Villages, the wonderful offerings of the Continental Market and the spectacular fireworks, plus so much more.
Make sure you keep the 17th & 18th July free in your diaries so that you don’t miss out on any of the action
