Great Cornish Food Festival, Truro
Now in its 12th year the Great Cornish Food Festival, the biggest held in Cornwall, takes place every September. Whether you’re a fish fiend or a chocolate connoisseur, there are stalls to cater for every taste plus a host of local, acclaimed chefs demonstrating their favourite recipes.
Cornwall’s reputation for excellent local produce and artisan producers has grown massively in recent years, and the Great Cornish Food Festival is an excellent event in which to sample their delights all in one place. From bakers and butchers to cider makers and cheese producers, there is a plethora of goodies on offer.
The event takes place over three days, is free to enter and is hosted at Truro’s Lemon Quay, in the heart of the city. There’s loads of street-food style pop up shops and displays, long trestle tables on which to eat, local breweries selling their wares and of course lots of sampling. You can pick up some skills and handy hints from the chefs who will be appearing across the three days.
