The full line-up at EITP Chesterfield features world-leading tribute artists alongside favourite local bands across two stages, as well as an array of mouth-watering street food vendors. (The line-up is different to EITP Buxton.)

Those of you who have already enjoyed the family-friendly fusion of music, vibes and food in the leafy heart of Buxton will already know what all the fuss is about. Eat in the Park’s second home can now give the people of Chesterfield a party of their own this weekend!

Organisers fulfill life-long dream of running their own festival

Having full-filled a lifelong dream of running their own festival in their hometown of Buxton, organisers George Darbyshire and Jack Burnham can’t wait to bring Eat in the Park to Chesterfield. “The last two years in Buxton have just been fantastic. We have been overwhelmed with the support from the local community and the feedback has been so positive”, said co-founder Jake.

“We could never have imagined we’d be here three years on after planning the first event back in lockdown in 2020. Queen’s Park in Chesterfield seemed the perfect location and as we saw with Buxton, this bought visitors to the town which is great for the local economy. We can’t wait until tomorrow!”

Of course at the heart of the festival is the food! Around 20 street food vendors will be on hand in Queens Park serving up flavours from every corner of the globe all weekend.

Entertainment for all the family

Children can also enjoy a dance and sing-along with entertainment throughout both days with Disney performers singing well known children’s songs from TV and film.

“As with Buxton in previous years, everyone of all ages can enjoy the festival! On both days there will be children’s activities and a dedicated Kids Zone, roaming acts and characters, bubble artists, Disney performers, face painting and loads more, so all the family can get involved and join in the fun”, said Jake.
