THE FIRST Kenilworth Food Festival proved a mouth-watering success.
Thousands of food-lovers descended on the town on Sunday where more than 50 food, drink and produce stalls filled Warwick Road, offering everything from hot dogs and burritos, to macaroons and churros.
There was a live demo kitchen to inspire adults, while younger foodies could enjoy chocolate crafts and even a chocolate genie.
Jamie Walker, of organisers CJ’s Events Warwickshire, said: “The day went amazingly well, an estimated 6,000 visitors attended with traders selling out as early as 1pm.
“The feedback we’ve received has also been great, the quality and variety of food & drink was lovely. We’d love to do it again next year and we will now approach Warwick District Council and Kenilworth Town Council to begin discussions.
“In 2018, we want more local Kenilworth businesses involved to showcase their products. Businesses can get involved by being part of a taste trail, advertising in a festival guide, being part of our cookery theatre, or by having a stand.”
