The Great British Food Festival returns to Dalkeith Country Park, showcasing everything great about food as well as some amazing entertainment & live music.

Visitors will be able to choose from a jam-packed programme of events during the 2-day festival, including chef demos, a BBQ stage, foraging walks, a craft & gift marquee, an artisan market and a range of fabulous street food for all tastes – all while enjoying an array of live music throughout the day.

The Great British Food Festival will be sure to be fun for the whole family with a range of kids’ activities on offer, including a mini zoo, kids cookery classes, circus skills workshops and fun fairground activities. 4-legged furry family members don’t miss out either, as the festival is dog friendly!

Are you up for a challenge? Then make sure you head for the aptly named Challenge Stage where you can take part in Men v Food, Cheese Off or Cake Off!

The Great British Food Festival takes place at Dalkeith Country Park from 10 – 11 September.

Summer is finally at an end and Autumn has arrived. No matter what time of year you visit Edinburgh, you’re guaranteed to be spoilt rotten for things to do and see. As the summer comes to an end the city becomes somewhat quieter after the past couple of months when the festivals are at their peak, although this year is different from usual. Edinburgh this Autumn holds some great events and is the ideal time to visit our stunning city and explore at a slower pace.
