Edinburgh Food Festival

About Edinburgh Food Festival

Edinburgh Food Festival will return in July 2019 and has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2014, hosting top industry figures such as Carina Contini, Shirley Spear, Tom Lewis, Guy Grieve and Neil Forbes. The event welcomed over 30,000 visitors in 2018.

The free Festival welcomes visitors of all ages to George Square Gardens, with stallholders offering everything from Alandas Gelato and Fish & Chips (East Lothian) to Jarvis Pickle pies (Berwickshire) and Chick & Pea street food (Edinburgh). Quenching thirsts throughout the five days are a selection popular drinks brands, including Fyne Ales from Argyll.

With quality Scottish food at the heart of it, the festival is a fantastic introduction for visitors to see just a soupçon of what Scotland’s larder has to offer.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh Food Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
