LOCH FYNE FOOD FAIR: 29th and 30th May
If music be the food of love play on…
The weekend of 29th and 30th May is not only music, far from it.
Last year the weekend events were enjoyed by 3000 residents of Argyll, and visitors. Hopefully even more of you will attend this year. We can promise that, whatever the weather, you will find a warm welcome, and masses to do and see.
The fair has become a benchmark of quality, and a showcase for the best that is on offer.
Whether you want to try local oysters and top quality salmon; hand crafted cheeses from Gigha; smoked beef from Islay, game from the Holy Loch, or Winston Churchill wild venison; traditional jams and preserves, or mouth watering chocolate- this is the weekend to try every food and stock up on your larder and freezer.
The aim of the food fair, and its predecessor the Sea Food Fair, has always been to provide an opportunity for all comers to try the great food produced in this area, and to meet the people who make it. By adding live music, kids’ activities and inviting local charities to participate with fund raising stands it becomes a great day out for all.
HAVE A DRINK!
You might just want a tipple as well. A taste of wine from the wine bar or a Hebridean Liquer can accompany your nibbles from the exhibitors. Those visitors who have not had the pleasure of quaffing Fyne Ales beers are in for a treat.
For those who want a break from eating, drinking and music there will be a craft tent organized by Loch Lomond Craft Association- a large number of exhibitors showing a wide range of craft skills including jewelry, silk painting, knitwear, silks, paintings, photographs, rocking horses, and many more stands. You can while away the hours, and maybe buy a few early Christmas presents.
There is masses to do for all the family, but some events are to be laid on especially for children: Tombola, face painting, badge making, children’s musical instruments, bouncy castle and lucky dip will hopefully keep them more than happy and occupied for hours.
Please join us for a special weekend.
