Ashby de la Zouch Food Gusto Festival Sat 27th & Sun 28th May

Save the date for an amazing Bank Holiday weekend at the Ashby de la Zouch Food Gusto Festival Sat 27th & Sun 28th May. The popular Ashby de la Zouch Food Gusto Festival is back for another weekend-long celebration of the region’s finest food and drink.

Wes Ewing from Food Gusto says ‘The festival returns to the Bath Grounds Ashby de la Zouch (LE65 1GP) bringing a wide range of high quality, unique gourmet food and drink to the area’.

This year’s festival is set to be the biggest and best yet, with exhibiting businesses again being hand picked for variety, provenance and passion to ensure visitors get a taste of something different from the region’s finest producers.

The tantalising array of food and drink will be complemented by a packed programme of entertainment, bringing together all the ingredients for a perfect day out for foodies and families alike.


In addition to the sight, smell and taste of amazing food from dozens of artisan producers, Ashby de la Zouch Food Gusto Festival will include a full line-up of live music from local artists, plus fairground rides for the children and Rotary’s Gusto Bears Picnic. The Rotary’s Gusto Bears Picnic completes the day out for families as children can enjoy the Punch and Judy Shows, Magicians and take part in the competitions while their parents can relax with some great food and drink.
Food Gusto event director Wes Ewing said: “The Food Gusto Festivals have really taken off and we’ve worked hard to create an unforgettable experience for the festival goer.
Our festivals are about relaxing and having a good time as a family, while sampling some amazing food and drink. The event is improving all the time as we establish it as one of the region’s best food festivals.
“Each pitch is carefully considered so that visitors experience a variety of culinary delights, such as artisan bread, farmhouse cheese, pickles, cured meats, locally produced wine and beers, Prossecco, handmade confectionery, unique cakes, delicious pies and much more.”


Thousands of people visited last year’s event which boasted high quality and varied stalls, including hog roasts, bison burgers, wood fired pizza, Indian, Caribbean and Spanish dishes, oak-smoked cheeses and handmade fudge. These could be washed down with real ale, cocktails, organic wines, milk shakes and barista coffees.
