This much‐loved free community festival is back at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday 25 September, from 12.30 - 5.30pm by the Timber Lodge
. We've joined forces with Urban Food Fortnight 2016
to celebrate the end of this year's city-wide celebration of London's vibrant local food scene.
A taste of what's to come at this year's festival
Join us to celebrate local growing and local produce in and around Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. This year there'll be live music and barn dancing at the 'Stomp Stage' and highlights will include the internationally acclaimed PIG by Whalley Range All Stars
, a truly original installation and show inside a 30-foot long sleeping sow - and if that's not enough to whet your appetite, there'll be grape stomping in true harvest style.
Activities will take place throughout the day representing the festival themes of ‘Make, Grow, Do’. These tents will host a packed programme of workshops, demonstrations and entertainment, and of course there'll be a host of stalls showcasing locally produced food and drink at the festival.
