The north-east’s favourite indoor foodie experience is set to return this summer – and early bird tickets will be on sale from 9am today.
Saturday, June 1 will see state-of-the-art Dyce venue P&J Live play host to Taste of Grampian for the third consecutive year.
Running from 10am to 5pm, the family-friendly event will not only offer a taste of the north-east (and further afield) from local businesses, but also a feast of activities for all ages at every corner.
The one-day event has attracted more than 10,000 people – all keen to get a bite of the action – through its doors in previous years.
Even more are expected for Taste of Grampian 2024 as organisers look to grow the foodie celebration.
‘Foodie family fun’: What to expect at Taste of Grampian 2024
In 2023, visitors were treated to celebrity chef cooking demos, live music, workshops, masterclasses from local chefs, drinks tastings, and a children’s zone, to name a few things.
James Martin, who is best known for hosting his ITV cookery show, and self titled queen of potatoes and TikTok sensation Poppy O’Toole attended.
Plus, a stellar line-up of more than 150 exhibitors (including street food trucks) showcased their fare.
For 2024, there will be a strong line-up of Scottish and local chefs with fantastic tasting experiences for customers once again.
A whole host of crafters and food and drink producers will be selling their products – ranging from artisan delicacies, fresh food and baking to drinks – and sharing their brand stories, too.
Kids will be kept entertained with fun food trails, inflatables and more.
Keep an eye out for some big announcements – regarding headliners – in the coming months.
