It takes place at Leyland Market and Ecroyd Street car park between 11am and 5pm.
There will be live music, a barbecue, children’s activities and countless stallholders selling amazing, fresh, local produce.
Coun Aniela Bylinski-Gelder, cabinet member community engagement, social justice and wealth building, said: “A Taste of Leyland is such a wonderful event and really showcases Leyland culinary prowess.
“Now in its fifth year, the event is going from strength to strength and we should expect hundreds of people to join us at Leyland Market on Saturday.
“There are things to do for all the family and it’s a great opportunity to shop local – the perfect Bank Holiday day out.”
There is also a chilli eating competition hosted by Dare U Foods for those of you brave enough to take part!
Between six and 10 daredevils will be welcome to face the chilli eating competition where contestants will sweat their way through several rounds, each increasing with heat a few thousand scoville ratings at a time.
You can apply to enter the competition by emailing [email protected] with your name, date of birth and information about any food allergies you have.
The chilli champion will be crowned with a certificate and a hamper filled with chilli related goodies.
