Bristol’s much loved food festival Love Food is undergoing a spooky makeover this Sunday 27th October, just in time for Halloween. Taking place at Bristol’s Creative Quarter, Paintworks, the festival is completely free to enter and visitors can expect a whole host of fun and games for all the family.
More than 40 of the South West’s best food producers will be showcasing their wares, ranging from homemade pies and freshly baked bread to local cheese, cakes oils, jams, sauces and much more. As always there will be a dedicated children’s area offering plenty of free activities including spooky arts and crafts, apple bobbing, face painting and the annual fancy dress competition – prizes will be awarded for the best costume.
Street food will of course play a large part too, as the courtyard will be alive with everything from spicy Mexican tacos, game casserole, Jerk chicken, ribs and slaw, hotdogs, paella and pasties. You can also pick up some spiced hot chocolate, mulled cider and English wine to wash it down and fend off the autumn chill.
Commenting on the event Lorna Knapman, Love Food’s founder said: “I’m really looking forward to our Halloween event. We have some great stallholders coming and brilliant activities for the children. Kids love Halloween and this is great opportunity for them to dress up for the fancy dress competition and come and make some spooky decorations!”
“Autumn is my favourite time of year. Food gets comforting and our street food markets will certainly warm your cockles with spices, pasties and stews. There will be plenty of fresh produce on offer too, to take home and cook up your own warming feast – perfect for a cosy Sunday night in with the family.”
There is free parking at the site, which is on the Bath Road and a 20 minute walk from Temple Meads train station.
