Feast of Free Entertainment Planned for Springfest 2017
Preparation for Scotland’s freshest festival—Springfest—is well underway, and organisers are planning to serve up another feast of food, free fun and entertainment for everyone looking for the perfect day out.
Now in its third year, the festival is a celebration of amazing food and drink from across the country.
This year’s event takes place on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 April at Loch Lomond Shores, with around 80 suppliers expected to set up on the stunning banks of Loch Lomond for the weekend.
The festival is part of Scotland’s Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology in 2017, which will shine a spotlight on Scotland’s rich history and heritage. The food and drink suppliers are either linked with Scotland or use Scottish produce and are passionate about food and drink.
There will be fun for all the family as kids get to try being mini chefs at the kids tent and get a chance to meet the Easter Bunny, and follow the Spring treasure trail. Adults can enjoy popping into the cook's demo tent, sponsored this year by Greenergy, and open throughout the day for visitors to pick up tips on cooking up some spring delights, as well as listening to live music from a range of excellent Scottish musicians across the festival site.
The Springfest festival, just a short drive from Glasgow, Stirling and surrounding towns is free to attend, opening at 10am and closing at 6pm both days.
Kat Kennedy, festival organiser, said:
“It’s set to be another great year for Springfest as we have been inundated with booking requests from a wide range of producers across the country.
The mix of food and drink on offer will certainly tantalise the taste buds; and festivalgoers can also expect to enjoy a great mix of live entertainment from street performers, live music, cooking demos and more. Several vendors will be providing tastings at their stands too. It’s one of the best free festivals and we can’t wait to welcome everyone’’.
