Now firmly established as one of the nation’s favourite food festivals, Cornwall Food & Drink Festival brings together everything that people love about Cornish food. Three days jam-packed with the county’s finest chefs and award winning producers, guaranteed to make your mouth water.
With more than 60 exhibitors, live chef demos and culinary challenges in the Chefs’ Theatre – as well as plenty of opportunity to sample Cornish cuisine – this year’s Food & Drink Festival is a veritable feast of fun for all the family.
Some of the county’s top chefs take centre stage, as they cook up a storm in our Chefs’ Theatre. With their entertaining challenges and live demos, visitors can learn how to make tasty dishes using local produce and watch top chefs in action.
If shopping’s your bag, our Food & Drink Pavilion provides the very best of Cornish Food and Drink under one roof, and the popular outdoor market offers the freshest, locally grown produce from around Cornwall.
This is a great event for those who love their food and after feasting your eyes on the cookery demonstrations we’re sure you’ll appreciate a visit to the Croust Bar where you can grab a bite to eat. It’s the perfect place to sit back, relax and soak up the festival atmosphere before going back for seconds!
We haven’t forgotten about the kids either. Our Funky Food Zone is full of amazing food facts, hands-on activities and all-out food fun.
Add into the mix the famous Cornish welcome and you are in for a great weekend! Being in the heart of Truro also makes it easily accessible by bus, train or car but, best of all, it’s free!
