Food Festival Organisers Postpone 2020 Event

A mainstay in the region’s calendar, organisers have made the difficult decision to postpone Gloucester Quay’s award winning Food Festival.

The annual foodie event which welcomes over 100K people featuring culinary demonstrations from celebrity chefs, live entertainment and the very best artisan produce from across the region has been moved to July 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Jason Pullen, Lifestyle Outlets Managing Director said: “clearly under the current circumstances people’s safety is of paramount concern to us, therefore with a heavy heart  we have taken the decision to postpone this year’s food festival until 2021.

“We appreciate this might be disappointing as it has become a mainstay in the calendar for visitors from the South West and beyond who enjoy great food and entertainment. We are already looking forward to 2021 when we will be able to host this event again in true festival style.”

The three-day event will take place from 23-25 July 2021.
