Food lovers are in for a real treat as the Stamford Food and Drink Festival arrives at Stamford Meadows…
The fabulous foodie weekend brings with it a whole host of tasty treats and delicious drinks from Friday June 17 to Sunday June 19.
You can look forward to the best of local, regional, national and even international flavours as producers of breads, wines, cheese, beers, crafts come together in Stamford, a town famous for its independent shops and boutiques.
Not only can you enjoy some great tastes, you can also enjoy some great sounds with live music throughout the weekend, children’s activities to keep the little ones entertained and there’ll be a craft beer festival, with street food and a seating area too.
Traders are bringing foods to satisfy the most continental of palates – from Scandinavian hot-dogs, French cheese, piping hot paella, to Turkish delight and South African curries and Boerewors.
Homegrown delights will also be in attendance, from Lavinton Lamb to Brown’s Gourmet Sausages (vegan and veggie varieties will also be on offer), to FW Read and Sons’ selection of cheeses, Bytham Kitchen’s Homemade Chutneys and Spicy Monk Cider, from Lincolnshire.
Independent traders will also be selling gifts and other goodies and there’ll be a live music stage and children’s entertainment making it a great family event.
