The canteen will also have afternoon teas on offer with a host of cakes and German lager.
Other food establishments involved in the Winckley Weekend will be Forum Bar, Mystery Tea House and Duk Pond.
Tim Joel, events manager at Preston Council said: “There is a real public desire to maintain the spirit of the Guild and Winckley Weekend takes a mix of Guild activities and themes and incorporates them into this weekend of festivities.
“The Square, Winckley Street, Guildhall Street and Cannon Street will be alive with a vintage market, world food & drink from the Winckley businesses, live music, classic cars, fairground rides and even a giant dragon Veronica to entertain the crowds.”
The event will take place on Friday May 2 and Saturday May 3.
