The Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival UNLOCKED is a special edition of this annual event, organised by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture.

Festival programme 2020

Celebrating the very best of Manx produce for a 12th year, it’s a weekend where we shine a light on all the passionate people, businesses and organisations that make the Island’s food culture so uniquely bold and creative.

With over 60 exhibitors showcasing quality produce rich in provenance, this year promises to stay true to everything that has made the festival such a success in the past, with the Manx Produce Marquee, Drinks Pavilion, Manx Cookery Theatre, Catering Village, Children’s Discovery Zone, Market Stalls under the Colonnade and performance areas for live musicians.

In order to maximise efforts to stimulate economic activity, this year’s event will be half price to visitors and exhibitors.

Adult tickets are £2.50 per day. Children under 16 have free admission (no ticket required). Buy tickets in advance via VillaGaiety or at the gate.

Open 10am to 5pm Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September 2020
