The event was launched by the chef, currently appearing on BBC2 in Lose Weight for Good, after its inaugural year at his home town of Marlow, when all 18,000 tickets sold out in a day.
Speaking about bringing the festival to Tunbridge Wells, he said: "We are showcasing beautiful food and lots of buzz in a beautiful town. It ticks all the boxes. I know that the event will be amazing.
"The buzz it created last year in Marlow was amazing and people were talking about what good fun it was for ages afterwards. We want to bring that to Tunbridge Wells.
"We're bringing in people who have the heart and soul and the passion. Artisan is a word which is banded about a lot, but it is about passion and heart and soul, so this festival has that artisanal feel. It will be something really special in your back garden."
The event aims to celebrate the very best food the county has to offer, combined with live music, chef demonstrations and talks.
Music will come from the likes of Toploader, Scouting for Girls, The Christians, Tom Odell.
Pub in the Park will be taking place from Friday, July 6 to Sunday, July 8. Tickets go on general sale on Friday, February 2, but those who register for Pub Club get information and tickets on Thursday, February 1. To sign up visit pubinthepark.co.uk
