​Cider-making, fire feasts, live music, celebrity chefs and so much more…


Experience a food and drink festival like no other. 25 individual food and drink events are packed into Taste East Devon 11-19th September 2021 including summer parties, fire-feasts, pizza and cider making, live music, wine tasting, flour milling, pies and distilling and much more.

The series of events, which begins on Saturday 11 September and runs until Sunday 19 September, will be held at a variety of locations across the area, with a packed itinerary of food and drink events every day.

Ottery St Mary in the heart of East Devon will kick things off with its own Food & Families Festival on the 11th - from then on all manner of tastings, demos, producer visits, special menus will be staged across the area, culminating in a grand finale at THE PIG-at Combe’s Summer Party in Gittisham on September 19.

Individual ‘ingredients’ will range from small scale affairs (think 20 or so people), to an estimated 3,000 at the Ottery St Mary Food & Families event. This festival represents a complete ‘field to fork’ experience across this wonderful area, which is so well-endowed with good food and drink.

Taste East Devon was launched earlier this summer at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage - and founding members include well-known names such as Darts Farm, THE PIG-at Combe, River Cottage, Deer Park Country House, East Devon AONB, Mazzard Farm, The Jack in the Green, Otter Brewery, Lympstone Manor and The Donkey Sanctuary.

Sponsors include East Devon District Council, East Devon Excellence, NFU Mutual Honiton, NFU Mutual Tiverton, Jurassic Fibre, Ashfords and Lympstone Manor.
