I want to create a map for an event showing places with lists of facilities, "food", "toilets", "water" etc. I want the user to be able to filter out everything except the thing they want eg "food". Any suggestions?

uMap might help you.

Mapcontrib and mapcomplete are primarily editors, but can also serve as thematic viewers.

More information about these softwares and many others can be found on the OSM wiki.

Been trying to find something in umap but without success.

Did you check this guide ?

You would need to create a new layer, with a dedicated overpass query, for each "category" that users might enable or disable.

Might be quite slow though.

(sorry for the loong delay).

If you want a static site, that works fast, the better is to download the data of each "layer" as GPX (or another geo format), through overpass-turbo for exemple, and load them over an OSM background using leaflet and one of its plugins. There are also plugins for layer management and such.
