Here Comes Summer!

The British Street Food Awards are back! The biggest street food competition in the world, with food fights in Britain, Europe and America. We’re turning an unpredictable 2020 and 2021 into an unstoppable 2022 with an amazing line-up of live events all over the UK this summer, where you’ll be able to sample Britain’s best street food as our finalists cook to win YOUR vote – AND the vote of our expert judging panel.

Traders should apply for ANY of the heats here. They will be hoping to get through to the BSFA grand finals, and win the right to call themselves British champions. With added opportunities to represent the UK at the 2022 European Street Food Awards. And, just maybe, get themselves on the team to take on the USA in 2023 after the first ever USA Street Food Awards this summer! Bring it on.

We are future-proofing the heats, and the finals, with the latest digital technology – allowing customers to order and pay on their smartphones. And we’re looking to work with a new roster of partners and sponsors who want to support the new generation of food heroes – check out our previous collaborations. But we’re hoping that this year will be more about food for sharing, eating with your fingers and a right old knees up Mother Brown. Can’t bloomin’ wait.
