Taste of Scilly Festival

A mouth-watering, month-long celebration of the very best in local food and drink from across the islands...

This September, the Isles of Scilly will host its fourth annual Taste of Scilly Food Festival - a mouth-watering, month-long celebration of the very best in local food and drink from across the islands.

Tuck into our unique low-food miles, slow-food culture of the famously unspoilt archipelago and enjoy a fresh foodie experience to savour every day: from lobster feasts to Scillonian produce markets, from beach barbecues to pasty-making workshops, from evening supper boats to Taste of Scilly cocktails and cream teas.

Our event highlights include:

Low Tide Event

A truly unique Scillonian experience: the ultimate pop-up festival, mid-channel between the islands of Tresco and Bryher. Find full event details here.
