Selby Food & Drink Festival is back. The popular event is just around the corner, and looks set to be even bigger and better than previous years, with lots of new exciting things in store. The free event promises a huge variety of the best local produce, alongside a whole host of other activities, including tastings, cookery demonstrations, street entertainment and family fun!
The event gets under way on Saturday 27th July, running from 9.30am to 5.00pm on Market Place, Selby. The event is always a great community gathering for those who share a passion for food and drink, however, there is something for everyone this time around. There will be street entertainment once again from the fantastic Edmund & Hilary courtesy of MarkMark Productions, with other entertainment acts on the day including Neil Wilde, Red Sky, Marina Mae, Simon Bolley and Holly Taymar.
As always, there is the opportunity to try out some high-quality Yorkshire food and drink for very reasonable prices. The day can facilitate the whole family, and here’s hoping the weather will be as sunny as it was last year! The Market Place also offers countless places to sit and relax if that is more your style, with all stalls and activities in close proximity.
The festival is sure to bring together the very best hardworking locals who have a real passion for food. With over 35 stalls set to appear on the day, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to taking your pick.
The Jolly Sailor, Little Badger Cider and Joy of Coffee are just some of the drink stalls you can find on the 27th July, plus many more across the festival. If it is more of a sweet taste you are after, be sure to pay either Gail’s Country Kitchen or the Little Square Cake Co a visit, where both will be of service. All grounds are covered at the festival, with food stalls ranging from cold sandwiches and snacks to Jamaican food.
As well as celebrating some of the more traditional UK tastes; there are also opportunities to try new foods at Selby Food Festival. Feinkost will be serving octopus, crayfish and prawns throughout the day, perfect for seafood fanatics and even better for those who wish to try this type of food for the very first time! Cossack Cuisine will also be at the festival, providing the best Russian food, cold and ready to take home.
Last year’s event was extremely well supported by visitors to the town, and the day turned out to be a great success, so why not pop on down for a great family day out, while supporting local businesses at the same time. The Wine & Dine team would like to wish everyone involved in the Selby Food and Drink Festival every success.
