What’s Included

Day passes to Foodies Festival

VIP option available

Magical family day out

See celebrity chefs in action

Children go free

Some people eat to live. Others live to eat.

The first group see food as fuel. The latter daydream of crispy chicken skin, zingy lemon tarts and cheese so ripe that it could a run a half marathon.

If you fall in the latter camp then you will love today’s Big Deal with Foodies Festival at Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park on the weekend beginning Friday 9th of August.

Brilliant family day out

Now in its seventh year, Foodies Festival is a brilliant day out for the food-loving family.

From celebrity chef demos to comedy cook-offs via drinks master classes; pop-up restaurants and the popular Street Food Avenue, Foodies Festival is three days of gastronomic good times.

Offer on day passes

The Big Deal is for two day passes to Foodies Festival at Inverleith Park. Valid for entry on any one of the three days (9-11 August), tickets include a useful guide to the festival’s many attraction.

VIP day passes are also available, valid for entry on any one day of the festival. VIP tickets include entry to the exclusive VIP tent, a taster meal from a pop-up restaurant, goody bag and a glass of bubbly. 

VIP tickets also guarantee reserved seats for master classes and theatre sessions.

Kids go free

Foodies Festival is designed to be fun for all the family and, to help make it easy for Mum and Dad, children aged 12 and under go free when accompanied by an adult.

Top chefs cooking live

As well as the wonderfully wide variety of artisan foods sold at the Producers’ Market, the Chefs’ Theatre is one of the top attractions at Foodies.

This year, the talent includes Michelin-starred Jeff Bland from The Balmoral Hotel; Craig Sandle of The Pompadour by Galvin; Great British Menu contestant Mark Greenaway; Mattia Camorani of Cucina at Hotel Missoni; Neil Forbes of Cafe St Honoré; Graeme Pallister of 63 Tay St; Paul Wedgwood of Wedgwood, the Restaurant; Iggy Campos of Iggs and John Quigley of Red Onion.

Cake & Chocolate Theatre

This year, the Cake & Chocolate Theatre is a brand new attraction which joins the BBQ Arena – complete with Man Vs Food style competitions; the Cocktail Theatre; Wine Village; Drinks Theatre and Children’s Cookery Theatre.

Comedy cook-off

Comedy and cooking have always been a popular recipe at Foodies Festival and this year is no different. Stephen K Amos and Gyles Brandreth will be demonstrating their (lack of) culinary skills while Mark Greenaway, of Great British Menu, will be supervising a daily cook-off competition between Fringe comics.


Above all, Foodies Festival is about enjoying a great summer’s day of fine food, drink and entertainment. Festival goers are encouraged to relax on Foodies’ City Beach; enjoy the shows on the entertainment stage and, of course, sample the delights of the pop-up restaurants and bars.
Sound good? The Buy Now is just down there.
