Each summer Inverleith Park is taken over for a weekend by a selection of tents, stalls, food trucks and pop-up theatres for Foodies Festival.
Now in its 11th year, Foodies Festival is back in Edinburgh this summer from the 5th to 7th of August and I’m very excited to tell you that I’ve got TWO pairs of tickets to give away for this fantastic festival. Entering couldn’t be simpler, just fill in the boxes below and you will be entered into the draw to win a pair of day passes. Really, what are you waiting for?
I’ve been going to Foodies Festival for about five years now and loved it each year. We’re talking street food, food and drinks tastings, cook tent demos, and much, much more besides. A couple of years have even featured sitting in the sun drinking a rum-laced coconut with a straw… Not convinced yet? Here’s a video they’ve made from previous festivals:
This year the line up for the pop-up theatres is absolutely cracking with a whole line up of well known chefs and foodies. For 2016 the line up includes a Masterchef finalist and chefs from the Great British Menu as well as a selection of chefs from Edinburgh restaurants, including The Printing Press, Gardeners Cottage, The Field, Scran & Scallie, The Pompadour (at the Waldorf), Number One (Balmoral) and Cafe St Honore.
With the Olympics being in Rio this summer, there’s also a focus on Brazilian street food, and I even hear talk of a bug eating contest…
Whatever takes your fancy, there is something for every food lover at this brilliant weekend and I strongly suggest you get yourself down there at some point. You can find out all the details and buy tickets on the Foodies Festival website.
Thanks to Lanyard Media for sorting out some tickets for us and the prizes.
