A new three-day food and drink festival is taking place in Belfast this month and it’s promising visitors an irresistible taste of the city.
Taking place from March 23rd to 25th, the festival will showcase the very best of Belfast food and drink, highlighting the finest chefs, produce, restaurants, cafes and bars.
As well as tasty food and drink, there will also be a number of live music performances, street artists, tours, workshops and talks, as well as a street food village and an artisan street market.
Speaking about the festival, which will be taking place in the city’s cathedral quarter, Lord Maor Nuala McAllister said:
“BelFeast will be a fun experience for everyone, and boost our reputation as a food destination. Lonely Planet 2018 has already named us as one of the best places to visit and a big reason for that is our food culture.”
She added: “BelFeast will shine a spotlight on Northern Ireland’s outstanding food and drinks industry from the farmers and artisan producers who offer a dazzling variety of choice, to the restaurants and chefs who combine local ingredients to create mouth-watering meals and memorable dining experiences.
“The festival will also celebrate the unique role that food plays in our lives, encouraging people of all ages to get involved and learn more about what they eat and where it comes from.”
Michele Shirlow, Chief Executive of Food NI, added: “We are delighted that Belfast City Council is holding such a fantastic event that showcases local food and drink. Northern Ireland has a wealth of award winning producers and chefs who are passionate and dedicated to their craft and this event brings some of the best offerings together at one event. This is definitely a date to add to the Food lover’s calendar.”
