The Ashburton Food & Drink Festival is a celebration of all the fantastic local food producers and traders from Devon and Cornwall.

Last year’s new look Festival welcomed more Food Producers and included talkers, musicians and street entertainers and was enthusiastically received by both stallholders and the public. We expanded into North St. with a lot more room for people to move around. It went off well and we thank all the traders and helpers, drivers and volunteers whose hard work went to make it a great day.

Born Hectic Events, run by Shelly and Rick Worthy, are pleased to have successfully carried on the excellent tradition started by the Cookery School and Peter Brewer. This year’s Festival will be much the same as before – with a few changes to develop things further through the ancient town of Ashburton.

The festival is enjoyed for the quality of the food producers and the friendly Ashburton atmosphere with many people saying it is their favourite food festival of the year.

On Saturday 9th Sept. 2017, we will again transform St.Lawrence Lane and North St. in the heart of Ashburton with stallholders lining the streets offering the very best in local food & drink. As before there will be local producers giving enthusiastic talks and lots of entertainment…

Events won’t just be limited to St. Lawrence Lane or North Street either with Ashburton’s retailers, pubs and eateries getting involved in the festivities presenting live entertainment into the evening.

Bring the family to the Ashburton Food & Drink Festival and help celebrate the best of Devon in the ancient stannary town of Ashburton.
