Power of Food Festival
June 16 - June 17
Join us with family and friends for this year’s Power of Food Festival, celebrating community food growing and local change makers. Expect a joyful weekend of events, fun and entertainment in more than a dozen community food gardens around the city: from Wester Hailes to North Edinburgh, Leith, Bridgend and Portobello. Each participating garden will offer its own programme of garden tours, workshops, Solstice games, talks, family activities, music, stories on a food theme, guided cycle rides, and plenty of opportunities for delicious food. Be inspired by community change makers and discover the city in a new light. Engage in conversations about the role of food in a sustainable and fairer world. Take a stroll, get on your bike, and join in the fun at a garden near you.
A Festival for everyone! (entrance is free – some activities invite a donation)
