From the much vaunted pizza of Streatza (‘A tremendous work of foodie art that you should seek out immediately’ according to Shortlist) to the multi-award winning ice creams of Ginger’s Comfort Emporium, this year’s festival features food to get your taste buds tingling.
Whether you’re ordering from a 1969 Citroen Van found in the South of France, a Tuk Tuk flown in from India or a bona fide garden shed, our food traders are bringing the most adjective-laden fare Blackburn has ever seen. Expect fresh, seasonal, homemade face with fresh, vibrant and creative twists. Deliquescent deserts and ferociously spiced pastries, artisanal coffee and veggie food for meat eaters.
With two extra-special foodie sites set up for the festival we’re making more of a meal of the National Festival of Making than ever.
