Sample Food Festival

It is with a heavy heart that we confirm that Sample Food Festival will not be going ahead this September. Due to the current climate we will be postponing our 10th birthday celebration until the 4th of September 2021.

Whilst the festival can’t proceed we will be making the most of this beautiful region, we hope you’ll join us in buying local fresh produce, visiting our very favourite restaurants and cafes, drinking our locally crafted teas, coffee and alcohol.

Choosing local every time means supporting our region and the phenomenal people in it whenever and wherever you can.
See you next year!
