The deadline for exhibitors who wish to have a stand there is Monday, August 1.

North Devon Council’s executive member for economic development, Councillor Pat Barker, says: “The Foodfest goes from strength to strength and is now a firm favourite in the local foodie calendar.

“Last year more than 10,000 people visited throughout the day, which is a fantastic boost for the local economy. I expect space to be snapped up, so if your business is interested in taking part, get in quick if you want to be part of North Devon’s hottest food event of the year.”
