Food Events & Festivals 2017

Each year, we get very excited about the Food Festival season - the perfect day out where you can taste lots of produce, buy from your favourite producers and enjoy cookery demonstrations from top chefs from Dorset. We've been extra-excited this year as the Festival season is started early and there were lots of newcomers popping out throughout the year.
