Weston super Food Festival
Tropicana Marine Parade, Weston-super-Mare BS23 1BE
Sep 16, 2017 10:00 AM - Sep 17, 2017 06:00 PM
Last year's festival attracted over 30,000 visitors. We prioritise local producers and the numbers of local businesses represented grows year on year. The festival include a food Experience Theatre where we include local producer showcases, demonstrations by local chefs, talks, tastings and debates. The festival features a huge programme of food themed entertainment from street theatre to Kids Activities and we aim to engage and enthuse all sectors of the local community in food related topics.
We include everything from an Edible festival Garden and 'grow your own' projects to conservation coppicing and practical hands on cookery workshops. Our theme for this year is sustainability and will feature everything from sustainable transport and a community bike ride from Big Worle to the festival, to an emphasis on local sourcing, sustainable fishery, green energy, eco products, waste minimisation and a food waste meal.
We reward local food and drink excellence with our annual Weston super Food Awards and are applying for Heritage Lottery Funding to tell the forgotten food stories of Weston which we hope will be become a valuable learning and tourism resource.
