Food Events & Festivals 2018

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