Freshers Food Festival 2016

This event is the gastronomic highlight of the 'Welcome Week' calendar. Join us for an afternoon of delicious food where we will be showcasing Edinburgh’s finest sustainable food businesses, food-loving societies and organisations! We hope you’re hungry…

Fancy a food break? Then why not make an afternoon of it, and join our festival of gastronomic treats! Each year, the Freshers’ Food Festival brings the best food businesses, societies and organisations from around the city, to share their ethical and locally-sourced produce with you. Students will have the opportunity to enjoy delicious samples, make their own pedal-powered smoothies, meet local enthusiastic foodies and learn about sustainable eating. So join us this Freshers’ Week to discover the best and tastiest of Edinburgh’s sustainable food!

Allergy warning: nuts will be on site. Please let a member of staff know if you have any other serious allergies we should be aware of.
