Abergavenny Food Festival 2017

The Abergavenny Food Festival is possibly my favourite weekend of the year. My family and I have gone to the festival every year since I can remember and I have made so many amazing memories there, so every year when September rolls around I get as excited as a little kid in the lead up to Christmas.

I still find it crazy that so many people from all over the country come to little old Abergavenny every year – apparently Stephen Hawking even visited this year which just blows my mind.

During this one weekend of the year the whole town just has a completely different atmosphere – it’s full of people from all walks of life just having a good time and enjoying one of the simplest things in life: food.

Trying new foods is one of my favourite things to do, and I swear every year there seem to be even more exciting new stalls and cuisines on offer.

This year’s food fest was also quite a different experience for me as this time I went as a vegetarian. I was initially worried that I’d struggle to find food I’d like without meat in, but I needn’t have been. There were so many vegetarian and even vegan options available which I think was really great. I love that the festival tries to cater for everyone.

If you hadn’t already guessed from the title I am a massive baking fanatic, and so wandering around and lusting over the many cake and patisserie stalls meant I was pretty much in my element. I went home with plenty of inspiration that’s for sure!

Although slightly dampened by the rain, this year’s food fest continued on with the tradition of being an amazing weekend full of great food and great company. I already can’t wait for next year’s!
