Our Story

about us

Foodies Festival is a celebration of quality local food and drink, launched in Edinburgh in 2006 and now with 14 festivals around the country, making it the largest food and drink festival in the UK.

Each Foodies Festival is a celebration of the food in each region, as we encourage local artisan producers, local street food traders and local food and drink producers to take part.

At the heart of the festival are the theatres, giving top local chefs the opportunity to show off their cooking skills to their audience, who can take the recipes home with them.

We are delighted that MasterChef and MasterChef Professionals winners and finalists come on tour with Foodies and join the fun in the Chefs Theatre.

In the Cake and Bake Theatre local bakers join Bake Off winners and finalists baking and making sweet treats. In the Drinks Theatre wine, champagne, beer, cider and other drinks experts run tutored tastings every hour. The Kids Cookery theatre gives children a chance to taste new flavours and learn basic cooking skills. The Cookery School teaches authentic recipes in hands-on sessions. Learn more about Firepit Cooking from specialists. 

On the Musicians Against Homelessness (MAH) live music stage top artists perform throughout the event and monies raised are donated to Crisis.

Foodies also brings street food pop ups to other events.
