Celebrate Suffolk's Foodie Town at Free Entry Food and Drink Festival
The Our Bury St Edmunds Food and Drink Festival on Sunday August 28 and Monday August 29 promises a weekend of foodie treats and displays as well as a host of family fun in Suffolk's Foodie Town.
A full stage programme showcasing some of the town’s favourite food and drink establishments will complement a farmers’ market and scores of stalls selling everything from gins to granolas and beers to burgers, with something to tempt everyone’s taste buds.
This year is the tenth anniversary of the first Our Bury St Edmunds Food & Drink Festival organised by the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation for the town.
Our Bury St Edmunds Chief Executive Mark Cordell said: “Since we started this event in 2012 we have tried to offer something a little different each year and 2022 is no exception. We are shining a spotlight on many of the local highlights that make Bury the foodie capital of Suffolk.
“Among our BID member businesses getting involved in the festival are a number of our established restaurants such as Maison Bleue, 1921 and Casa with their chefs giving demonstrations in the Stoves Cookery Theatre.
"Others are having a stall as part of the event or doing something special at their own premises over the weekend. We’re also involving member businesses from our partner organisation Bury St Edmunds and Beyond such as The Northgate and ICE. Bury has around one in four of almost 90 food and drink establishments with awards to their name and this event is a great showcase for them.”
The event will also give an opportunity to the stars of the future with demonstrations from West Suffolk College and have advice for those looking to cut down on food waste thanks to local charity Still Good Food.
For younger visitors there will be a range of children’s activities in and around the town centre, including face painting, fairground rides and free street entertainment across both days.
The event runs from 10am to 5pm on Sunday 28 and Monday 29 August.
