Food lovers are being urged to mark a special date in their diaries for later in the year as the popular Tamworth Food Gusto Festival returns in 2017. Organisers Food Gusto are promising another weekend-long celebration of the region's finest food and drink when the festival makes a welcome return visit to Tamworth Castle Grounds on Saturday 9 September and Sunday 10 September.
Large crowds again expected for the Tamworth Food Gusto Festival
The festival, now in its third year, will again bring a wide range of high quality, unique gourmet food and drink to the area. This year's mouth-watering event promises to be the biggest and best yet, with exhibiting businesses again being hand-picked for variety, provenance and passion to ensure visitors get a taste of something different from the region's finest producers. The tasty and tantalising array of food and drink will be complemented by a packed programme of entertainment, bringing together all the ingredients for a perfect day out for foodies and families alike. In addition to the sight, smell and taste of amazing food from dozens of artisan producers, Tamworth Food Gusto Festival will also include a full line-up of live music from local artists, plus fairground rides, games and activities for children.
Tamworth Castle Grounds to host the Food Gusto festival
Food Gusto event director Wesley Ewing said: "The Tamworth Food Festival has really taken off in the last two years and we have worked hard to create an unforgettable experience for the festival-goer. Our festivals are about relaxing and having a good time as a family while sampling some amazing food and drink. The event is constantly improving as we aim to establish it as one of the region's best food festivals." He added: "Each pitch is carefully considered so that visitors experience a variety of culinary delights, such as artisan bread, farmhouse cheese, pickles, cured meats, locally-produced wine and beers, Prosecco, handmade confectionery, unique cakes, delicious pies and much more."
The castle grounds will be filled with food and drink stalls
Thousands of people visited last year's event which attracted more than 80 high quality and varied stalls, including hog roasts, bison burgers, wood fired pizza, Indian, Caribbean and Spanish dishes, oak-smoked cheeses and handmade fudge. And to top things off, all the various food stuffs could be washed down with real ale, cocktails, organic wines and barista coffees.
