Welcome to the Stockport Beer and Cider Festival web site. The Festival is held each year the weekend after the late May Bank Holiday at Edgeley Park and is amongst the largest CAMRA organised festivals in the North of England.

The number of beers and ciders on offer during the festival runs into the hundreds with up to one hundred and fifty British cask and bottled conditioned beers, plus foreign bottled conditioned beers and ciders and perries on offer to tantalise the taste buds. However the festival is more than just a beer and cider festival - great live entertainment is available each session in our separate entertainment suite, stalls, hot and cold food and a cracking atmosphere make the festival the premier event in the Stopfordian calendar.

Please take a look around our website using the menu at the top of the page to find out more about the festival, and don't forget to keep the end of May free!
