Louth to host celebration of local food and drink on Lincolnshire Day
More than 60 different food and drink businesses, primarily from the Greater Lincolnshire area, will be descending on the town for the inaugural Louth Food and Drink Festival on October 1, organised by East Lindsey District Council, from 10am to 4pm.
There will be something for everyone to enjoy, with products on sale including local cheeses, chutneys, cakes, pastries, wines, beers, tacos, pizza, gin, waffles, fudge, fries, chocolate, ice cream, and more.
As well as stalls by local producers, there will also be demonstrations from local suppliers and venues throughout the day, as well as live music and a children’s area, featuring pop-up shows from Rhubarb Theatre performing The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The Festival is being held as part of the Council’s Vital and Viable Market Towns initiative, working with local communities to protect, promote and preserve East Lindsey’s market towns, and is designed to promote the nationally recognised unique food and drink offer in Louth and the surrounding area.
Councillor Adam Grist, East Lindsey District Council portfolio holder for Market Towns and Rural Economy, said: “We are immensely proud of the fantastic variety of high-quality food and drink businesses on offer in Louth and the surrounding area, and it will be fantastic to see residents, visitors and traders coming together to celebrate and explore for themselves.
“Whether you’re a sweet or savoury person, or if you like a tipple or something non-alcoholic, I can guarantee there will be something new for you to try that is being grown, made, baked or brewed right here in Lincolnshire.
"I would encourage everyone to save the date and come along to support our brilliant local businesses and producers and help to put Louth and East Lindsey on the culinary map.”
The event is now fully booked and not open to new applications.
