Got an Event Idea?


Submit your EVENT IDEA using the form below. 

Our closing date for EVENT IDEAS  has now passed.

However if you have an idea you would like to submit you may still have your event accepted into the programme. 

You can find more information in our Stage 1 guide available to download here Call for Events (pdf)

Your event idea can be a work in progress, but please provide as much information as you can. Don’t forget to consider how your event fits with Food Connection’s aims and the 2018 theme. Head to our Inspiration Station to get your ideas flowing.

After submission, your event idea will be assessed and you’ll be contacted by a member of our team who will be your main point of contact for the festival. They will work with you to develop your idea and give you the practical and promotional information needed to make your event a success. We’ll also be looking for connectivity between events and may suggest partnership arrangements to help you maximise public interest.

Our full programme will be released and ticket sales will go live in April.
