Truro Food Festival set to return


Details have been announced for the return of the Truro Food Festival.

Set to be held over five days, the gas will be lit on Wednesday September 25 with the festival coming to a sizzling finish on Sunday 29.

Once a highlight in the Cornish event calendar, it’s hoped the return of Truro Food Festival will give local traders and businesses a vital boost at the onset of autumn.

Coinciding with traditional harvest time, the showcase of local produce and culinary talent will be hosted by Truro Farmers Market and Cornwall Event Cabins – the same team which delivers The BIG Christmas Market.

Featuring a Chef’s Theatre, a Producer’s Village, and a mouth-watering Street Food Corner, the event will take over Lemon Quay and spread across the city, with stalls on Boscawen Street on Wednesday 25 and Saturday 28, and pop-up events taking place elsewhere.

Organiser Stewart Girvan said: “We are beyond excited to be bringing this event back, with high hopes that it will benefit the whole Cornish food and drink industry and the region as a whole.

“We’re busy working with our brilliant sponsors to put everything in place for an epic five-day festival.”

The festival will shine a light on the many talented chefs working in Cornwall – both established and emerging, as well as the diversity of fresh local produce and the plethora of home-grown food and drink brands.

Girvan added: “With the wealth of chefs, producers, and street food vendors on our doorstep, we want this event to be as genuinely local as possible. Cornish businesses will have first refusal across the board, which will also help keep food miles and transport emissions to a minimum.”
