WHAT'S ON IN CLARKSTON

FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL

Following a pilot year in 2016, I Love Clarkston will once again host a Food & Drink Festival in the town, this time returning with a completely new and exciting layout.

The BID team will be taking over the Goods Yard on Saturday 26 August, and filling it with market stalls from local producers and suppliers showing off everything from craft beers to cupcakes and coffee to cocktails! You can also see the demo tent for the first time, where a number of chefs and cooks will share their favourite recipes and tips with you - compered by the critically acclaimed Jak O’Donnell from The Sisters restaurant in Glasgow!

There will also be a cafe/bar area, allowing you to have a seat and sample your purchases with a coffee or a glass of wine!

FOOD & DRINK FESTIVAL

The event will kick off at 12 midday and entry is free. We hope to see you there!

Taking place in Clarkston Hall, whilst the Food & Drink Festival takes place in the Goods Yard car park on Saturday 26 August, I Love Clarkston bring you their first ever Hand Made Sale!
