Running October 11th – 20th, the Festival aims to highlight the tastes of our local food landscape, connect visitors and residents to local food, and support our local food economy.

Activites and events will vary across the region - with opportunities to sample and buy local products, listen to the stories of how our food goes from field to folk, and experience food production up close. There are a mix of participating businesses, communities and organisations who are local food producers, processors, providers and supporters. No matter what type of participant, all have the common focus on high quality, seasonal, and locally sourced food.

12th – 27th October, Arnprior Pumpkins, various times (pre-booking required)
