Folk festival and love of food

Welcome to northern Sweden’s biggest food event! Four days of food experiences for all ages and all tastes.

Matfesten in Skellefteå (The Skellefteå Food Festival) is a folk festival filled with a love of food. Over four days every year at the end of August food producers, restaurants and growers from the north of Sweden meet thousands and thousands food-loving visitors. This year (2016) the Matfesten festival will be held between 29th of August and 3rd of September.

The festival will take place in central Skellefteå. Visitors will be served a smörgåsbord of culinary experiences: restaurants, food personalities, a harvest home market, special appearances by master chefs, food competitions, a culinary market and much more besides.

The aim is that as much as possible of what is served or on sale will have a local connection. And the best of all – admission is free!

The festival is organised by the non-profit association Matfestens vänner (the Friends of Matfesten), dedicated to promoting northern Sweden’s food culture and provide a great folk festival.
