Traders & Beer Tent

Ely Folk Festival prides itself on having a wide range of food stalls, craft, music and other traders that bring colour, vibrancy and great crafts and food to the festival site, not to mention our wonderful real ale bar. We have lots of great food & craft traders lined up for the 2021 festival. The real ale bar will operate differently this year due to covid-related precautions and there will be a queuing system in place to order & pay for beers, ciders, other alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks. We request that customers maintain social distancing and move away from the bar once they have picked up their drinks. We’re delighted to say that the real ale bar will have the same fantastic range of locally source craft ales as in previous years – this year 10 breweries are supplying us with their finest goods – our the tasting notes can be downloaded 2021 Beer Tasting Notes
