Great Cornish Food Festival

23 – 24 – 25 September 2016

The largest festival anywhere that’s completely dedicated to Cornish food and drink is back again this September.

Prepare to be wowed by a 3-day gastro extravaganza, where over 100 different food experts and chefs gather to celebrate Cornwall’s beautiful bounty and showcase why this popular peninsula has gained such a reputation as the UK’s No. 1 destination for great food and drink.

In a convenient, accessible, all-weather location in the centre of Truro – Cornwall’s only city – the event has become a regular favourite for tens of thousands of people from all over Britain and beyond.

Headlining this year, we are proud to welcome April Bloomfield (Spotted Pig, NYC) and Tom Adams (Pitt Cue, London). These two remarkable chefs have come together to create a new Cornish venture in an old Georgian dairy farm near Launceston that they are restoring into a guesthouse, dining room and working farm, with workshops, curing rooms, festivals and general pig-based merriment!   They will be joined on stage by Philip Warren, renowned local farmer and master butcher.

Check back to see more details as we upload the full programme of entertainment. The list of confirmed exhibitors can be found HERE.

As ever, the festival is completely FREE to enter, thanks to GWR, our key sponsor, and all our other wonderful sponsors and supporters.
