The first Bembridge Harbour Food Festival is fast approaching and will be held over the weekend of Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October with a central ‘Food Hub’ at the front of the Bembridge Sailing Club on Embankment Road.
There will be Island foods for sale in the Food Hub as well as tasters prepared by local chefs, demonstrations and a bar run by Goddards Brewery and Eurovines. Establishments from St Helens, Bembridge and Brading will be operating from their own premises and will be promoted in the hub alongside a recipe/directory booklet that will be available for sale with details of restaurants, special offers and recipes.
Visitors are encouraged to take one of the trails around the area by foot or bike (bikes may be hired from Tacktisle Adventures) to visit Best Dressed Crab on Fisherman’s pontoon and other cafés and pubs though the area.
Organiser Sue McLagan says:
“The idea to hold a Food Festival is to showcase our area as an all year round destination for visitors, whether from the Island or the mainland, to extend the season. We not only have great ‘foodie’ establishments but the harbour, beaches, lovely countryside and many attractions and activities for the whole family”.
Entry to the event is Free.
