Tweed Foodie Fest was inspired after the 2011 inaugural “Foodie Friday” dinner party, which surprised organisers and attracted over 800 people. The festival has since grown to a five day celebration of local food and food culture, with events and activities across the Tweed region.
Tweed Foodie Fest aims to educate both locals and visitors about where their food comes from, how it is produced and why it is important to support local industry. It seeks to create fun experiences that provide a meaningful connection with food; whether through an informative farm tour, a cooking class or a delicious meal based of fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.
