Bridgend Feastival, originally uploaded by Tourism Bridgend.
Not your usual food festival, FEASTIVAL is a new food festival with a difference. Alternative and quite unique. Expect the unexpected. Has all the usual trimmings, but there’ll be some odd surprises.
Taking place in Bridgend town centre, FEASTIVAL, Wales’ alternative food festival will open on the 1st October with the arrival of the Olympic leek. This will mark the start of the two day event that is set to amaze, excite and tingle tastebuds.
Food lovers will relish an assortment of finest welsh produce, whilst egg dropping, leek lobbing, pimp my snack and melon sculpting will keep visitors smiling.
As well as the traditional food hall and market stalls, there will be ‘cook-offs’ with special guests, cookery demos, an urban allotment, food cinema and the grub-hub tent designed just for little foodies.
Make sure you get your 5 a day and a little bit more at Wales’ first alternative food festival. Bridgend town centre, 1st & 2nd October 2010. For more information visit www.walesalternativefoodfestival.com or call Bridgend TIC 01656 654906.
