This year’s food festival event is set to be bigger and better. Over 85 local and regional food producers are expected. Chef demos from local restaurants, cookery classes, live music and also a fireworks display on the Saturday evening.
Speaking about some of the exhibitors that people can expect to see, food festival committee member Sam Regan told us: “It will be bigger than ever and we are delighted to say we have 11 start-up businesses attending. These include Doughnutology, Ffa Da Coffi, Gardd Gwyllt and Bao Revolution. They are all new over the last year and will be showcasing their products. We would encourage everyone to come and see their new offers and ideas. It is great to see Sabor De Amor. Who is one of the start-up slots from last year now in town-centre premises. We look forward to seeing this year’s fledgling businesses flourish.”
Prices are remaining the same at £4 for adults and £2 for children; under-eights come in free. There is also a £10 ‘family ticket’ that covers two adults and three child wristbands. The wristbands allow re-entry throughout the day.
What’s On Offer
Moreover, committee member Alex Jones also reeled off a range of exhibitors: “For those who wish to drink responsibly during the day. Aber Falls Gin, Wood Brewery, Rosie’s Cider, Magic Dragon of Aqueduct Ale and of course Wrexham Lager will be attending amongst others. Wrexham Lager are also sponsoring the live entertainment again this year.
“The festival will also have the huge marquee again containing sixty (ish) exhibitors. This will include Sabor de Amor, Riverside Spirits, Chilly Cow Ice Cream, Happy Hedgehog Foods, and a lot more. We also have a separate demo kitchen marquee with a chef theatre. This is where you will be able to watch some of the region’s best chefs educate and entertain throughout the weekend. We don’t do celebrity chefs. The opportunity to showcase local talent far outweighs anything a celeb could offer!”
Some free parking will be available at town centre car parks. This does not include the Tŷ Pawb multi-storey car park. Please note free parking only starts after 10am. Anyone who wishes to park before 10am will pay the car park’s usual charges. However, The council say this will be strictly enforced.
Andy Gallanders from Bank St Social is again organising the live events programme. “On the Saturday, the Wrexham Lager stage (bandstand) will host a full line-up of local musicians with superb headliners Rhythm Train. The Coverlovers are headlining on Sunday.
Lastly, Andy adds, “It’s been a privilege to be involved with curating the entertainment for Wrexham Food Festival for the second year running. The addition of free parking is not only great for the festival. But a huge boost for the whole of the town and one we encourage businesses in the town to take advantage of!”
