Edinburgh Food Festival will return in July 2019 and has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2014, hosting top industry figures such as Carina Contini, Shirley Spear, Tom Lewis, Guy Grieve and Neil Forbes. The event welcomed over 30,000 visitors in 2018.
The free Festival welcomes visitors of all ages to George Square Gardens, with stallholders offering everything from Alandas Gelato and Fish & Chips (East Lothian) to Jarvis Pickle pies (Berwickshire) and Chick & Pea street food (Edinburgh). Quenching thirsts throughout the five days are a selection popular drinks brands, including Fyne Ales from Argyll.
With quality Scottish food at the heart of it, the festival is a fantastic introduction for visitors to see just a soupçon of what Scotland’s larder has to offer.
George Square is Assembly Festival's main hub and the home of the Edinburgh Food Festival once again. Assembly George Square Gardens house our Spiegeltent Palais du Variété, the Piccolo Tent, The Treehouse and a selection of street food vendors and bars.
“Edinburgh Food Festival is a brilliant showcase of food and drink producers across Scotland. Each year it’s great to see new food trends showcased and the large variety on offer, the quality of food is fantastic and there is something for everyone. It’s also the perfect family friendly event in a handy city centre location.
We can’t wait to take part again this year with our selection of freshly caught Scottish seafood, old school fresh fish and chips and multi-award winning gelato. We look forward to welcoming more visitors than ever in 2019.”
