Choosing the Right Foods to Bring to a Festival

Sometimes, we tend to be overexcited over a thing. Take a festival as an example. Too much excitement can make us leave one of the most important things that we need to bring: Food.

Sure, there are lots of camping festivals that don’t require you to bring any cooking equipment since they already have ready-made foods. However, many are being doubtful about this, especially if they don’t know what foods are prepared on the event.

So when it comes to bringing foods to festivals, one must bring something that can really satisfy a stomach. Not some chips, crisps, or any junk that you can find. If you do, the next thing you’ll find is yourself running to find the nearest burger joint or something. So what foods do we need to bring to a festival?

Cold Food

  • When you opt on bringing cold foods to a festival, you must get yourself a cooler bag to keep them chill. Bringing one will keep all of your sandwiches, pasta, and any other foods chilled and fresh under the heat of the sun.
  • Pasta salads
  • Sandwiches
  • Wraps
  • Cocktail sausages
  • Overnight Oats
  • Chicken/Vegetarian sticks

Hot Food

  • Since festivals don’t require to bring cooking equipment anymore, it’ll be hard to find something to eat that’s fresh and hot. If that is the case, don’t forget to bring a vacuum flask with you. Want to have a nice soup for breakfast and dinner? Put it on a vacuum flask to keep it warm. Want to sip some hot coffee during nighttime? Take a separate vacuum flask with you filled with hot water.


  • When it comes to bringing snacks to a festival, it’s better to avoid bringing chocolate bars as it will easily melt especially if it’s sunny. Bring something healthy and nutritious. Just because you’re on a trip doesn’t mean you have to leave your healthy eating habits at home right? But it’s still not bad to bring some sweets though.
  • Energy/Protein bars
  • Biscuits
  • Cookies
  • Popcorn
  • Crisps
  • Muffins


  • Staying hydrated is very important when you’re on vacation. So don’t forget to pack plenty of bottled waters and some fruit juices that will last for the whole trip. Put them inside the cooler bag to keep them cold for a refreshingly ice-cold drink that you can just grab and go.
