Skye Food & Drink Festival
24-29 June 2019
The Skye Food & Drink Festival is a celebration of food and drink from across Skye and the surrounding regions, showcasing the stunning variety and quality of food and drink grown, produced and served on the Island, reflecting the heritage, culture and rich natural harvest of this unique Hebridean island.
The Festival’s aim is to promote the Isle of Skye’s natural local harvest and its producers to the world. It also provides an opportunity to network and collaborate with other similar-minded supply chains and industry professionals to find new markets and new innovative ideas to sustain the sector. Through encouraging cultural tourism, the Festival helps to maximise awareness of the Island’s food and drink offer whilst giving small businesses an opportunity to showcase their products and produce to the rest of the world.
Building on the past years’ successes, 2019 will feature a four-day festival trail during the week days of Monday to Thursday (24-27 June) which aims to encourage visitors to the Island who are seeking a unique and authentic culinary experience and who wish to immerse themselves in the local culture.
Events include masterclasses, celebrity chefs, cookery demonstrations, local artisan producers, live music, cook-offs and cèilidh dances, culminating in the popular two-day Festival Market where producers and consumers come together under one roof.
This year’s festival will focus on the theme of natural harvest and will include events in local foraging, Scottish heritage and the herb garden.
More information will be coming soon so please check back regularly for updates, latest news and forthcoming events.
