Louth to host celebration of local food and drink producers this October
A new celebration and showcase of the great, unique range of local food and drink producers will be coming to Louth on Sunday 1 October, as part of the inaugural Louth Food and Drink Festival.
The Festival, which is organised by East Lindsey District Council, will take place on Lincolnshire Day from 10am to 4pm, and will welcome over 60 different stalls to the town centre featuring a variety of different food and drink businesses, primarily from the Greater Lincolnshire area.
There should be something for all tastes to enjoy, with products on sale including local cheeses, chutneys, cakes, pastries, wines, beers, tacos, pizza, gin, waffles, fudge, fries, chocolate, ice cream and much more.
As well as stalls to buy the delicious delicacies there will also be demonstrations from local suppliers and venues throughout the day, as well as live music and a children's area, featuring pop-up shows from Rhubarb Theatre performing The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
The Festival is being held as 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. The Festival is designed to promote the nationally recognised unique food and drink offer in Louth and the surrounding area.
Just a selection of the wide array of butchers, bakers, cafes, confectioners, bars and more on offer in Louth can be viewed on the Love Lincolnshire Wolds website at lovelincolnshirewolds.com/louth/food-drink.
The event is now fully booked and not open to new applications.
Councillor Adam Grist, East Lindsey District Council portfolio holder for Market Towns and Rural Economy, said: "We are immensely proud of the fantastic variety of high-quality food and drink businesses on offer in Louth and the surrounding area, and it will be fantastic to see residents, visitors and traders coming together to celebrate and explore for themselves.
"Whether you're a sweet or savoury person, or if you like a tipple or something non-alcoholic, I can guarantee there will be something new for you to try that is being grown, made, baked or brewed right here in Lincolnshire. I would encourage everyone to save the date and come along to support our brilliant local businesses and producers and help to put Louth and East Lindsey on the culinary map."
