Tenth Year of Food & Drink Festival

Fri, 14 Sep 2018


A bumper crowd are expected for this weekend's Isle of Man Food and Drink Festival.

Adam Henson, farmer and presenter of BBC One’s Countryfile will be the special guest on Saturday and Sunday. 

The Food and Drink Festival is run by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture as a way of showcasing local producers and the contribution they make to the economy.

Minister for Environment, Food and Agriculture, Geoffrey Boot MHK, said: “This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Food & Drink Festival, which has become one of the largest and most popular events on the Island.
 
“Our research estimates the event itself is now worth £250,000 to the local economy.  But the real focus is to showcase the variety and quality of Manx produce to the people of the Isle of Man as well as those from further afield.
