Save The Date For Powderham Castle’s 2019 Food Festival

Save The Date For Powderham Castle’s 2019 Food Festival
  • Devon’s exciting foodie event, Powderham Food Festival, will return again this 5th and 6th October for its eighth year

Set in the grounds of the stunning Powderham Castle, the festival promises delicious local foodie treats and a fantastic fun-filled family day out for all ages. The Festival will be taking place on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th October 2019, and applications for exhibitor stalls will open at 09:00 on Monday 18th February.

Any applications made before the 18th won’t register the request. Applications will then close at 17:00 on Sunday 28th April.

Any late applications may not be processed. This year marks the first year of Powderham Castle organising the event, with previous event organiser, Bob Small, still very much involved with the event to ensure a smooth transition with his expert knowledge.

Bob Small commented:

“The Powderham Food Festival was first held in 2012 as a one day event; steady growth and interest saw the Festival become a two day event in 2015. The growth and interest has been maintained each year and we believe that the success of the Festival has been because of the great interest the Earl and Countess of Devon have taken in the event, careful organisation, good marketing and, most importantly, the venue itself.”

“Powderham Castle lends itself so well to a Festival of this nature with plenty of space for exhibitors, both inside and out, plenty of room for parking and, as a result, a very comfortable and pleasant experience for the many visitors.”

Sustainability and minimising food waste will be a key part of the agenda this year, as well as live music from brilliant local talent and a drinks bar for those who want to sit back and enjoy the atmosphere of Devon’s favourite food event.

Derry Tydeman, Managing Director at Powderham Castle commented:

“I’m delighted that we are able to take on the torch from Bob who has created and maintained such a wellrespected event over the years. With the expertise of our in-house events team we will be able to grow further, and with partners already on board we’re looking to add some exciting additions to the festival.”
