Crail Food Festival in Fife

Crail Food Festival, which had a highly successful debut last summer, is to take place in the middle of June. Crail, which is located on the East Neuk of Fife just south of St Andrews, provides a great venue for such an event and can easily be reached from Edinburgh and Edinburgh Aiprort should you be looking for a short break ahead of the summer holidays.

The event, which brings together local and regional exhibitors, chefs, and musicians, pulled in over 2000 visitors in 2011.

The festival had an opening supper concert followed by two days of food tasting, sampling, cookery demonstrations, music and family fun.

Dedicated to showcasing local produce and promoting local Companies, the event received around £5,000 in grants from Fife Council , Comic Relief , and the Scottish Community Foundation.

It also had support from Scotland Food & Drink, which contributed towards the creation of a “Taste Of Fife “ food hall and a harbour Seafood CafĂ©.

The organisers said that the event generated local and national press coverage, up to 20% of visitors were from outlying areas, and visitor spend exceeded £15,000.

This year’s festival will take place from June 15th to 17th and you can find out more on the Crail Food Festival Website
