Welcome to the Tennerfest

As the Channel Islands’ premier set price food festival, the Tennerfest has been run in Guernsey every year since its inception in 1997. Running from the 1st of October to the second Monday of November, the Tennerfest allows diners to select from a set price menu at participating restaurants across the island. Prices begin at £10, hence the name, and increase at £2.50 intervals up to £20.
