Welcome to Spring Tide 2013!
Now in its fourth fantastic year! Spring Tide 2013 is ready to rock again and welcome people this foodie festival at Burton Bradstock situated on Dorset’s stunning Jurassic Coast!
As details of the 2013 festival take shape, we will be updating the Spring Tide website, so make sure you bookmark this page and come back again soon to find out what’s being planned.
Since 2010 the Spring Tide food festival has seen crowds flocking to this popular National Trust site, and it is now firmly established as one of West Dorset’s favourite food festivals, well known for its friendly, fun and genuine atmosphere, epitomising everything that people love about West Dorset, its food and its people.
You can also meet some of the organisations supporting the local food networks and celebrating all that’s great about being outdoors in West Dorset, including Dorset Food & Drink. Dorset Food and Drink is growing at a fast rate, with new producers, shops and chefs popping up all over the county. The Dorset AONB and partners are working hard to co-ordinate all those involved in this trend.
The fact Spring Tide welcomes over 60 exhibitors is as good a reflection as any of Dorset’s wide range of quality local produce. And this year we hope to be adding the Bridport Farmers Market cookery demonstration kitchen to the mix, where you can check out live cookery demos with local chefs and pick up hints and tips, but for those who are truly serious about their food, the real draw will be the wonderfully diverse mix of producers who grow, breed, make and sell all the fantastic food, drink and crafts.
Spring Tide is all about buying and tasting great local food and drink and meeting the producers, as well as seeing what fantastic local arts and crafts are made right here on your doorstep, so expect to find everything on the shopping list from spring veg, fresh fish, local meat, artisan bread, cheeses plus a selection of locally made wines, beers and cider. We aim to connect you to the most extraordinary and delicious food experiences you will find anywhere.
Local food and concerns about sustainability really do matter to people who live and work in West Dorset and the success of Spring Tide demonstrates that people here genuinely do care about where their food comes from and what they eat and drink. This is not just a trend or a fad: it is a fundamental shift in how consumers and food lovers alike choose to shop, eat and drink. Long may it continue!
Spring Tide is almost entirely volunteer-run. We won‘t get the biggest ‘names’, but it’s still one of the friendliest and most enjoyable food festivals around. So join us for a weekend of fantastic foodie fun…we look forward to welcoming you to Spring Tide 2013
