Food festival set to break records
27th August 2016

exhibitorsThe Nantwich Food Festival is set to smash records yet again with over 200 exhibitors and stall holders signed up for the September event.
The annual food spectacular is now based entirely in the town centre, giving easy access to exhibitions, food demonstrations and entertainment to an estimated 40,000 visitors.
Space at this year’s festival has proved incredibly popular, and organisers have announced that companies will be travelling from as far away as Scotland and Ireland to exhibit.
John Coulter, Festival Director & Exhibitor Coordinator, said: “One of the reasons that the food festival attracts so many exhibitors is that it provides such a great opportunity to showcase their produce and to promote their businesses.
“There is a very positive impact for small, start-up food producers, and the event provides a great opportunity to enable them to meet customers in a friendly environment. So many return every year. “Everything is easy to reach around Nantwich, and the dedicated festival volunteers are quick to help anyone needing information.”
Cheshire is well represented once again, with a diverse range of unique food and drink companies lining up alongside charities, not-for- profit groups, schools and colleges.
Amongst this year’s local firms joining the fun is Bongo’s Rock & Roll Chilli Pickles (pictured) from Delamere, a company that brings a real splash of colour to the festival high street.
Co-owner Debs Alias said: “Unlike some food festivals, this one has a real sense of serving the local community by providing not just food stalls but entertainment, information and laughter.
“I love the fact that it’s run entirely by volunteers and yet it’s so professionally done. There’s a happy buzz around the festival and I find it infectious.”
