This year was the Food festivals seventh year, Gloucester Quays Food Festival attracted over 100,000 people in 2016 and as a result it is now classed as the biggest event of its type in the south-west.
The Food Festival is full of little stalls showcasing a vast range of food and drink you will also find music and entertainment for all the family.
Walking around it was so lovely to see a mixture of Award winning cuisine from not only Gloucestershire but all over the place. There were stalls selling warm food of different cultures, different types of drinks ranging from soft to alcoholic there was a Pimms tent that my mum was very pleased about after all it is the perfect summer drink right? There also stores selling homemade crafts and jewellery and tonnes of stalls showcasing the most delicious treats with brownies and fudge of every kind there was even a store selling treats for our favourite four-legged friends!
This year was the first year we had heard about it and as we all have a massive love for food we just had to go along. The event is free to enter and has a vast amount of stores that cater for all your needs. We headed down on the Sunday which happened to be the worst day weather wise which made the ruined our experience a bit as it is all outdoors but it was still a pretty incredible day where we were able to try out a range of foods that we may not have come across had we not gone to the festival.
We loved trying out the stuff that the stalls had to offer, my brother got stuck right in and said yes to every sample that the stalls were offering.
First stop was The Artisan Kitchen to try some Orange Marmalade which Ashley was keen to try out, although he has since said that the orange one wasn’t for him however, there were loads of others that he thoroughly enjoyed!
