The inaugural Taste of Orkney Festival will showcase everything that's great about the finest Orkney food and drink.

Products from the islands win awards across the globe, and for the first time Orkney is celebrating its own food and drink with a three-day event, The Taste of Orkney Food Festival.

The festival will place from Friday 25 September to Sunday 27 September, and aims to put Orkney on the map as a top destination for quality food and drink produce.

Born from a pristine environment of rolling green fields and clean seas, Orkney’s distinctive and varied range of food and drink truly encapsulates the essence of the islands, reflecting the character of a resourceful and enterprising community where excellence really matters.

There’s a packed programme planned so far, filled with workshops from culinary experts, chef demonstrations, a drinks fayre, food marketplace, and much more. Further details will be announced as work continues to finalise the programme - keep your eye on the Orkney Food and Drink website for more details.
