Now in its ninth year, Crail Food Festival will be held in the seaside village on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of June.

Crail Food Festival started life in June 2011 when its volunteer organisers placed a few market stalls in the Community Hall and then led a free walkabout event at Crail harbour. 

It has developed extensively since then.

Held over two days in multiple venues, the festival programmes a wide variety of food and drink based events centred around the picturesque harbour.

Local food is very much at the heart of the event and there will be more than 35 producers offering samples and selling their wares. A number will be giving demonstrations at their stalls.

This year's festival has a picnic theme and guests are encouraged to put together a picnic from the producers' stalls and enjoy it in Beechwalk Park.

Should the weather not be obliging, the organisers have laid on a back-up picnic location.

Of course, there will also be a street food zone; hot and cold drinks plus a bar.

Apart from a small charge for parking, the event is free.

We would tell you about the festival dinner taking place on the Saturday evening. Featuring a six course tasting menu devised by chefs from The Three Chimneys on Skye, it sounds like a feast.

Regrettably, it has also sold out so we won't tease you with any more info.
