Record crowds attend food and drink festival
Record crowds attended the Stamford Food and Drink Festival at the weekend.
The event, which was held at Stamford Meadows on Saturday and Sunday, was organised by Zoom Events.
The company’s director, Paul Kennedy, said they had been thrilled to return to Stamford with the festival.
He said the fun, family event catered for foodies and those who were just after two days of quality entertainment.
“Everything went off smoothly and we had a record number of people visit over the weekend,” he said.
“The feedback has been really positive and the weather was great, which helped bring in the crowds.”
Paul said traders at the festival had also had a “great time” and were looking forward to next year.
With a wide variety of traders, food lovers were spoilt for choice as everything from Greek and Mexican street food to home made bread, pastries and cakes was on offer.
In addition to an array of delicious food served from the pop-up kitchens and artisan groceries, a selection of craft beers, ales and ciders, as well as wine and prosecco was served from festival bars.
Live music throughout both days added to the atmosphere and visitors were able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
There was also a selection of stalls selling products including speciality drinks, garden furniture and crafts.
Popular children’s attractions included a fun chalk graffiti wall, fairground rides and face painting.
The Stamford Meadows will host the the Stamford Beer and Music Festival next month, which is also organised by Zoom Events.
The festival includes live music featuring a range of musical styles, food and drink and children’s activities.
It takes place on July 7 and 8.
