New Event dates for Festival 29th August, 30th August and 31st August 2020, with arrival dates for Campers from 2.00pm, Thursday 27th August.
Principle Organiser, Briony Wilson said “We regret having to do this as we have staged this event for the last 19 years without interruption but it seems, in recent days, that the spread of this disease cannot be contained and as such it would not be prudent to stage a mass gathering, food and drink festival whilst we are all still understanding how to live with this problem.

We have created a very special 20th year celebration for our 20th year in 2020, thanks to our Friends at Individual Restaurants, for all those wanting to attend next Easter's fabulous event. We have negotiated a £20 voucher that can be used in either Piccolinos Restaurant or Opera Grill Restaurant, both of whom are right in the heart of the city of Chester or any Individual Group Restaurant for which every person who books with us will be elegible for.
CamperFest, approaching its 10th year, is a great Easter camping weekend in city of Chester and runs alongside the Chester Food and Drink Festival, located right in the heart of Chester, on the beautiful Chester Racecourse. The setting is simply stunning. In the shadow of the Roman Walls, with the River Dee as your backdrop and the beautifully manicured grounds of the best attended racecourse in the UK. There is no other event like it and no other event where you can camp right in the middle of the city.
As we approach our tenth year of Camperfest on the Roodee and the event gets more and more popular this is a short summary of some of the key facts about Camperfest. It means that on your camp doorstep, figuratively speaking, you have 150 food and drink producers and some of the best street food and drink, all of which you have unlimited free access included in your pitch fee. Of course the big bonus is you are walking distance from the city centre with access to all the shops, the theatre, restaurants, pubs, river, cathedral and art galleries. - More facts click here
