Our 2020 Edinburgh Food Festival plans

3 April 2020

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been working closely with our partners and stallholders to bring together a delicious 2020 Edinburgh Food Festival programme. 

However, due to the spread of the Coronavirus and the potential for prolonged periods of social distancing, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend our programming for this July’s Edinburgh Food Festival.  

This is an incredibly challenging time and whilst the immediate future remains uncertain, we will continue to the monitor the situation closely and will be in touch should anything change. 

Whilst we are suspending our 2020 plans for now, please be assured that we remain committed to returning fully in 2021. Assembly is proud to produce the Edinburgh Food Festival, having cemented its place in the foodie calendar over the last 6 years, and we plan to do whatever it can to continue to do this in the future. 

We are very sad to have had to make this decision – particularly for the Food Producers who make such great produce, and for all those people for whom the festival is so important. 

We hope that you’ll join us in continuing to support great local makers as best we can during this difficult time – keep an eye on our social media where we hope to highlight some of the great work happening out there. 

In the meantime, take care, stay safe and we hope to see you soon.
