The LegenDerry Street Food Festival is set to return to the city this weekend, running from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st July 2019.
Set in Guildhall Street, this three day festival will showcase the very best of local street food, complemented by craft drink producers, live DJ sets and offers visitors a totally unique dining experience.
Organisers say you can expect an amazing array of food on offer with everything from wood fired pizza, to delicious mini sliders, smoked slow barbecued meats, burritos and even cotton candy.
Mayor of Derry and Strabane Michaela Boyle has welcomed the fact that all those participating in the festival are local businesses.
She said: “This is going to be a fantastic event for everyone to enjoy with a fantastic range of local food and drink producers stepping up to showcase their quality produce. We will have a variety of street food trucks, vans and trailers all located within the Guildhall Street city centre as well as pop up bars serving local craft beers and exclusive cocktails using local spirits.”
Catherine Goligher, Food tourism officer with Derry City and Strabane District Council explained the ethos behind the festival: “The idea to host a Street Food Festival was developed by the Council in partnership with the recently established LegenDerry Food Network.”
She continued: “The Local Food and Drink Strategy identified Street Food as one of our key growth areas with much potential to develop. We are delighted with the response to the call-out for participants and are really excited about bringing all this local food and drink out onto the streets for people to sample and enjoy.”
The festival will run from 5-11pm Friday and Saturday and 2-10pm on Sunday and admission is free.
