Paisley Food and Drink Festival returns

THE Paisley Food and Drink Festival will be an in-person event again in 2022 for the first time in three years.

The festival, which was cancelled in 2020 and hosted online last year due to the pandemic, will take place in Paisley town centre on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th April.

More than 30 vendors will participate in the event as well as local businesses.

Drinks offers will include a dedicated beer tent from the Renfrewshire branch of CAMRA and a craft beer bar from Innis & Gunn, while on the food side there will be a range of stalls from vendors including street food specialist Platform.

Entertainment will include live music performances as well as family-friendly games and workshops.

Louisa Mahon, head of marketing, communications and events at Renfrewshire Council, said the Paisley Food and Drink Festival is “one of the largest food and drink events in Scotland, with people travelling from all over to enjoy everything that the event and Paisley has to offer”.

“We’re also delighted that 2022 marks the return of the Paisley Beer Festival and Renfrewshire CAMRA into the main festival tent once again,” said Mahon.

“It’s also great to welcome back Platform and their mouth-watering range of street food alongside so many fantastic local traders and new faces to the festival.”
