The Woodford Folk Festival 2016/17 list of performers is impressive, but here’s something else to lift your excitement to new levels – the food & drink options!
There is something for everyone at this year’s festival which boasts an array of culinary pleasures to keep your appetites whet and your bellies full throughout the entire six days. Eat and drink at a different place each day with a selection of 66 restaurants and food stalls and 15 bars, or keep going back to your favourite place, the choice is up to you.
Hand chosen to cater for gluten free, vegan, raw and vegetarian, the variety is everything a food-obsessed festivalgoer could want. Delight your tastebuds in homemade Mexican, curries and samosas, pizza, pasta, burgers, felafels, paella, Thai, Japanese, breaky bowls, juice and coffee or treat yourself to a Byron Bay Organic Doughnut, gourmet ice-cream or crepes.
If you are done snacking your way around the festival and in need of something to quench your thirst, the variety of bars strategically positioned around the site means you will never be far from a decent cocktail or drink of choice. From cider and beer to sake and Chambord, vodka and whiskey and wine and unique concoctions, the drink list is large and the options are endless. Each bar is individually themed with their own signature drinks and cocktails so if you are looking to try something new this festival, make sure you indulge in one of these options:
For something with a little originality and unique flavour, then you must try the legendary Shampoine returning this year to the Pineapple Lounge. The most sought after drink on site annually is a recipe handed down three generations and there is a secret ingredient we can’t spill on the beans on. We can however share that it is a refreshing blend of white rum, ginger ale, and fruit juices topped with locally sourced seasonal fruits including fresh passion fruit, mint, watermelon and pineapple.
If you prefer something a little tangier, the Love Affair, served in Bills Bar, features vodka infused lemon myrtle (grown specifically for the cocktail on the festival site) and is served over a delicious homemade lemonade.
Woodford Folk Festival offers a myriad of choices and options when it comes to food and drinks. For more information and to plan ahead, check out the food vendors at this year’s festival on page 120 of the programme.
