Local food and drink businesses invited to join Louth Food and Drink Festival
East Lindsey District Council is inviting local food and drink businesses to join them for a celebration of local producers, homeware, crafters and venues at Louth's Food and Drink Festival this autumn.
Planned to take place in the town centre on Lincolnshire Day, Sunday 1 October 2023, the festival will showcase some of the great local food and drink on offer in Lincolnshire, as well as enjoying stalls, demonstrations and other entertainment.
The project is 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.
Louth's stakeholders identified that the town's fantastic variety of different food and drink businesses help it to punch above its weight, so a project has been devised to help the town receive recognition for its range of delicious local produce. This will also include an interactive Food and Drink map of Louth, which will be launched in the Spring.
Through the Vital and Viable project the Council is able to provide additional funding and support for the inaugural festival, meaning 10ft stall spaces will be available for just £25 for this year's event.
Businesses interested in having a stall, or doing a demonstration, at the event, can fill out an application form at www.e-lindsey.gov.uk/louthfoodanddrinkfestivalapplicationform or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications must be received by 28 February 2023.
Councillor Adam Grist, Portfolio Holder for Market Towns and Rural Economy, said: "We are rightly proud of the great variety of quality food and drink businesses on offer in Louth, and it will be brilliant to hold a festival that celebrates and shares these with both residents and visitors alike.
"I hope the festival will be a really special event that not only helps puts our independent producers and venues on the map, but also can help to support local businesses across the town centre. I would encourage any business who might be interested to get in touched and get involved with making the festival a fantastic celebration for the whole of Louth."
