Food and drink festival to be biggest ever

The festival will run alongside Paisley’s Real Ale Festival in April.

The Paisley Food and Drink Festival will be the biggest ever this year, organisers have said.

The event in April will feature producers from across Scotland as well as a selection of street food vendors, interactive workshops and live music.

It will be the first time the festival, in Abbey Close in the Renfrewshire town, takes place over two days, on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 April.


Those participating in the festival include Pitt Street Food Market, shellfish and speciality meat vendor Barnacles & Bones, The Buffalo Truck, Harajuku Kitchen and The Crema Caravan.

Hal Prescott of Pitt Street Food Market said: “The Pitt is delighted to be a part of this year’s Paisley Food and Drink Festival. We’ll be bringing some award-winning traders, from far and wide across Scotland. Expect some stunning food, drinks and entertainment across an amazing couple of days.

“People should come along to the event and try some amazing international cuisine from some of the best street food traders in the country.

“Come down and try dumplings from a tuk-tuk, hanger steaks off a bespoke bbq or shellfish with gourmet fries. It’s going to be a feast for the senses.”

There will also be activities for children with a selection of free children’s workshops and entertainers.

The festival will run alongside Paisley’s Real Ale Festival which will take place from Wednesday 25 to Saturday 28 April, run by the Renfrewshire branch of the Campaign for Real Ale.
