Wimborne BID has announced details of a new food festival which will be held in the town on 14th September.

Organised by a group of local businesses, the festival will take place around the town between 11am and 4pm, with Willow Walk and East Street already confirmed among the locations.

At Willow Walk, a marquee will host free food demos and talks from an array of foodie specialists and local businesses. There will also be deliciously tempting food stalls with samples to try before you buy.

East Street will be closed for the day to create a buzzy café culture with alfresco street dining, live music and food tastings.

There will also be a self-guided food walk route featuring many of the town’s food outlets, organised by award-winning Salamander Cookshop.

Participants can eat their way around the town while meeting some of Wimborne’s specialist food retailers, who will be on hand to give a flavour of what they are about.

Wimborne BID is sponsoring the food festival.

Tammy Sleet, BID Manager said: “This great idea has come from some businesses in the town who are working hard to make this happen.

“There are so many opportunities for the wonderful eateries and food outlets in our town to still get involved and we would love to hear from more businesses with their ideas.”

If you are interested in taking part in the new Wimborne Food Festival, email Tammy at [email protected]

Look out for more details and a Food Walk map in August at pick-up points around the town.
