Faversham Hop Festival Faversham Hop Festival

The Faversham Hop Festival is an annual two-day, free, family event held on the 1st weekend in September which commemorates the golden days of hop-picking when families would come to Kent and pass the evenings with music and stories.
Set against the backdrop of the ‘medieval gem’ of Faversham town centre, it is the ideal atmosphere to evoke memories whilst encouraging families and friends to meet and enjoy a variety of free entertainment.

It encourages visitors to Faversham and thus helps to boost and sustain the local economy.The event began in 1990.

The organising committee consists of dedicated and enthusiastic members of the local community who give their time freely for the good of the town.
