About Edinburgh Food Festival

The first festival was in 2006.

Since then, Edinburgh local and festival founder, Sue Hitchen, has launched more Foodies Festivals across the UK.

The festivals are celebrations of food and drink, offering the visitor a vast array of culinary delights and activities.

Mingle with the top local chefs, bakers, patisserie chefs, chocolatiers, restaurateurs, artisan producers, distillers and brewers.

It’s a truly social event where the visitor has the option to visit a variety of theatres.

There’s the Chef’s Theatre, where top chefs give cooking demonstrations, a Tasting Theatre, a BBQ Arena, a Children’s Cookery Theatre, Cake and Bake Theatre, Vintage Tea Tent, Feasting Tent, AGA Rangemaster and a Cook School to name just a few.

Your ticket provides access to all.


Vegans and vegetarians won’t be disappointed with plenty of vegetarian and vegan fare available for tasting.

There will also be vegan cooking demonstrations held in the Chef’s Theatre.

Wine, Champagne and Craft-Beer

The Drink’s Theatre is the place to head if you want to sample wine, champagne and craft beer or partake in a Wine & Champagne Masterclass.


Chill out by the entertainment stage, which features plenty of music throughout the festival – many unsigned – to get you stomping your feet and moving to the beat.

The festival ethos is creativity, positivity and fun, focusing on developing skills and being true to yourself.
