Edinburgh Food Festival launches for 2020


Edinburgh Food Festival will be making returning this year hoping to make a splash with Scotland’s official year of ‘Coasts and Waters’ at this year’s annual foodie event.

The capital’s only free city-centre food festival is scheduled to take place at Assembly George Square Gardens over 10 days, running from Friday 24th July until Sunday 2nd August 2020.

This year, the line up will include a series of live chef demonstrations from some of Scotland’s top culinary talent, who will be cooking up a variety of tasty recipes showcasing the freshest fish and seafood from around the country’s coasts and waters.

The new programme for 2020 will also include the popular ‘meet the local producer’ events, as well as over 20 local producers and street food stallholders serving up some best contemporary food and drink.

Launched in 2014, the festival has hosted some of Scotland’s top chefs and restaurateurs, including Scotland’s leading events chef, Barry Bryson from Cater Edinburgh, Carina Contini of Contini Edinburgh and Scott Smith from award-winning Edinburgh restaurant, Fhior.

The event welcomed over 40,000 visitors in 2019 and is now expected to be bigger and better than ever in 2020.

The free, non-ticketed festival welcomes visitors and their four-legged friends to Assembly George Square Gardens in the heart of Edinburgh’s world-famous Fringe Festival district.
