The Great Cornish Food Festival

Fri 26 - Sun 28 September 2014

After ten amazing years as Cornwall Food & Drink Festival, there’s a new name and a fresh new look to launch us into our second decade.

The bar’s been set, and the stakes are high. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the amazing products.  When Cornwall Food & Drink say Great Cornish Food – we mean it.

We’re still in Truro, right in the heart of Cornwall and we’re still the biggest celebration anywhere dedicated entirely to Cornish food and drink.  What’s more, we’re still FREE to visit. Does it get any better than that?

Great Cornish Food Festival

26· 27· 28 September 2014, Lemon Quay, Truro

The Great Cornish Food Festival is the place to find the very best that Cornwall’s talented, creative, and ever inventive producers have to offer. Plus we have some of the finest chefs taking those products and cooking up a storm right in front of you. The remarkable Nathan Outlaw, Jack Stein (son of Rick), Andy Appleton from Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, and many more favourite names will be in the theatre, in a packed programme where you can see, smell and taste the best of the best. On the new deck area alongside the bar, there’s even more to enjoy, as food and drink experts share their skills in another fast-paced schedule as you relax with a bit of croust.

Our festival’s not just for today’s food lovers – we want to inspire the growers, brewers, chefs and producers of the future. Kids can therefore find out the story behind our food, making it come to life in a fun, tasty and hands-on way.

Getting to the festival couldn’t be easier. Whether you’re coming from nearby or afar, there are many different travel options.  We’d recommend travelling by rail – a convenient choice that will save you having to worry about parking and allow you to enjoy as many tasters from the Sharp’s bar as you like. Find all the details on the Arrive page.

The festival is all on one level and therefore accessible for wheelchair users.

When you’ve had a good wander around the Festival site, why not head over to the opening weekend of the newly refurbished Old Ale House, featuring a brand new River Cottage menu and a selection of Skinner’s Brewery beers. Just 2 minutes’ walk from Lemon Quay.

Please bear in mind that dogs, other than guide dogs, are not allowed anywhere inside the marquee.
