It’s less than a few weeks until the Meraki Festival is upon as again, and it’s not just the line-up of artists but also the menagerie of different food vendors and pop-up bars that looks delicious.


These are a selection of the eating and drinking opportunities available over the weekend of August 10-12:

The Big Red Bus Bar

A fully-functioning bar inside of a double-decker bus? It’s more likely than you think. Run out of a refurbished 1967 London Routemaster, the family-run Big Red Bus Bar will be serving quality real ales, lagers and ciders alongside a full bar range of Prosecco, wines and sprits. Let’s just hope that no one getting on is driving!

Los Churros Amigos

With a permanent home in Oxford’s Westgate Shopping Centre and experience in catering for many festivals, Los Churros Amigos will be making the trip out to Meraki and serving up melted Belgian chocolate over freshly baked churros.

Macc Events will be sending two vintage bars to Meraki Festival, a Prosecco and cocktail bar and the Tequila Truck. Come and find them in the main field for a cocktail served by an expert mixologist or some bubbly for a summer’s evening.

For a bit of an exotic flavouring, Monami is a Vietnamese stall which will be serving up a variety of magical eastern flavours. Whether it’s honey roast pork, lemongrass or chilli chicken, served with traditionally baked banh mi baguettes, Monami dishes up authentic Vietnamese cuisine with an aroma that’s hard to ignore.

Gordon’s Sweets

From humble beginnings in Bethan Green Market, Gordon’s Sweets now sells their hand-made fudge and gourmet liquorice at leading UK festivals like Glastonbury. If you’re on the hunt for some sweet stuff, Gordon’s is the pop-up shop for you.

The Little Orange Van

“Orange is the happiest colour...” said Frank Sinatra, and no one will be walking away from The Little Orange Van without a smile. Providing a more healthy option, with a range of fresh fruit juices, smoothies and milkshakes, The Little Orange Van is the perfect place to refresh on a hot summer’s day.

The Street Diner

The Street Diner Van will be bringing gourmet American street food to the Meraki Festival. Their selection of burgers and hotdogs, topped with various sauces and cheeses, is sure to satisfy the midday meat-cravings of any hungry festival-goer.
