Edinburgh Food Festival, Assembly George Square Gardens, 23th July - 1st August 2021.

To mark the fifth anniversary of Edinburgh’s only city centre food festival, Assembly has revealed plans for a new bumper line-up, including a series of meet the producer events, workshops and chef demos, as well as over 30 local producers and street food stallholders serving up some of Scotland’s best contemporary food and drink.

With quality Scottish food at the heart of it, Assembly Edinburgh Food Festival is a fantastic introduction for residents in the Lothians and visitors alike to get a flavour for what Scotland’s larder has to offer.

Edinburgh Food Festival has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2015, hosting some of Scotland’s top chefs and restaurateurs, including Carina Contini of Contini Edinburgh, Shirley Spear from The Three Chimneys on the Isle of Skye, Tom Lewis from Monachyle Mhor and Neil Forbes from Edinburgh’s Cafe St Honore.

The Festival welcomed over 35,000 visitors in 2019 and after a rest year in 2020 will be bigger and better than ever when we return in 2021.

The free festival welcomes visitors of all ages to Edinburgh’s Assembly George Square Gardens. Entry to the festival and the talks is free and non-ticketed.

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. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
