Thousands of ‘foodies’ set to enjoy Powderham event
Record-breaking ticket sales for the Powderham Food Festival are being recorded by organisers – even though the event is still more than one month away from opening.
People are planning to travel from well beyond the boundaries of the south west to indulge in the artisanal delights on offer. Organisers are promising this year will be bigger and better than ever before.
There are the sweet baked sensations from the Cookie Queen and melt-in-the-mouth fudge from Edwards Fudge Kitchen. And then there are the plant-based goodness from Soul Bowl and some of the finest cheese from Godminster.
And let’s not forget the abundance of sweet and savoury cuisine that is sure to please even the most discerning foodies.

As well as showcasing a number of local producers and creators, this year’s festival is all about creating memorable family moments.
From chocolate sculpting to a miniature railway and a Shaun the Sheep AR Trail, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy.
Families can enjoy the face painting by Sonia Kemp or, if they feel brave enough, scale a climbing wall.
Return of the Bouncing Chefs
Organisers say parents and children alike will be thrilled to see the much anticipated return of the famous Bouncing Chefs. There is also excellent live music from Jimmy Ireland and Fintan May.
The two-day festival is jam-packed with entertainment, child-friendly activities, food demonstrations and special guest appearances from the likes of Charles Courtenay, the Earl of Devon. The line-up makes for an unforgettable and unmissable weekend.
Powderham Food Festival’s famous chilli eating competition returns for another year. So, for those who dare to brave the heat, festival-goers can compete for the ultimate title of Chilli Champion.
Hosted by Clifton Chilli Club, the challenge sees attendees chomp down on some of the hottest chillies available. It’s all in a bid to be crowned the 2023 ‘Chilli King’ or ‘Chilli Queen.’
The Powderham Food Festival has firmly established itself as a beloved fixture on the culinary calendar with a celebration of the fine food and drink which can be enjoyed from across the region.
