August will see one of the world’s most famous festivals take over Scotland’s capital city to celebrate a month of unique entertainment: from the very best comedy performances to the downright weird and wacky stage shows.
For this month’s #scotfood, we’re getting into the festival spirit and will be asking you all about Food & Drink Festivals. A recent study by Eventbrite found that more events are being hosted across the food and beverage industry than ever before and that the so called ‘pop-up dining experience’ was the fastest growing trend — recording 82% growth.
One thing’s for sure, it’s becoming a great way to discover new brands, purchase some great local produce and get to taste some delicious new food and drink! We want to hear all about your thoughts and experiences of Food & Drink Festivals by joining in with the questions below.
Remember to answer the questions using A1 to answer Q1 and so on and also include the #scotfood tag. See you over on @Eat_Scottish twitter at 9pm!
