Topsham Food Festival
Celebrating Topsham's salmon fishing heritage
STOP PRESS CALLING ALL HELPERS: Meet at 11.30am at Pebblebed Wine Cellar to help with distribution and positioning of tables
STOP PRESS -- Tables for Nello's Longest Table to go on 'sale' at 2pm April 20th at Route 2 Café.
The Topsham Food Festival and Nello's Longest Table 2016 will take place the weekend of July 2-3, 2016. The theme for this year's festival is 'Celebrating Topsham's salmon fishing heritage'.
Activities on Topsham Quay on Saturday included a farmers market, an exhibition about the history of salmon fishing, a current salmon fish boat and seine net with explanations from Tosham salmon fishermen, demonstrations from local chefs preparing salmon and local seafood, and in the evening street food stalls serving excitingly delicious foods, and live music from talented local musicians.
On Sunday morning, the community will once again turn out in force to help to assemble Nello's Longest Table comprising some 350 tables set edge-to-edge and stretching all along Topsham's Fore Street (starting just past the Fire Station), down to Topsham Quay (with tables on the Quay itself), and all along Ferry Road and the Underway as far as the Passage Inn. As always, we encourage everyone to create your own feast based on locally produced and sourced food and drink. This is our biennial opportunity for all of Topsham (and friends of Topsham) food, wine and drink, community and friendship. We hope to see you!
Thanks to all for making this such a special weekend, and see you in 2016! In the meantime, please our Shop Local Campaign.
Liz, Marc, Kim and all the Topsham Festival team
