TV chef Tom Kerridge, who owns Michelin-starred pubs and restaurants, is now bringing celebrity chefs and his other foodie friends to the party in Leeds and seven other UK venues.
He and wife Beth Cullen-Kerridge opened The Hand & Flowers, in Marlow - the first pub to be awarded two Michelin stars and one of five pubs and restaurants to be featured at Roundhay.
Angela Hartnett’s Italian restaurant, Cafe Murano, will also be there.
Three of Yorkshire's finest Michelin-starred venues will be represented - The Star Inn, of Harome, Pipe & Glass, of South Dalton, near Beverley plus York's The Black Swan and its new restaurant, Roots.
Tom, who launched Pub In The Park two years ago in Marlow, said: “Last year's festivals were so much fun, I cannot wait to bring the same excellence in food, world class chefs, ace music and an awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK.
"I’m so excited to bring Pub in the Park to Roundhay Park in Leeds to celebrate the culinary delights that Yorkshire has to offer. It's a top foodie destination for those who worship their pub grub."
