Everyone is welcome at the Festival and especially children as they may well be the chefs of the future.  Bring them along to cook, taste, buy and learn all about the food they set.

Family Fun at the Festival

On Thursdays, our ever popular Children’s Tea Party is hosted by Flavel Church – open to all where many of our local producers come together to provide some tantalising tasters for local and visiting youngsters.

From Friday through to Sunday, Cafe Alf Resco and Coast Country Cottages host our Family Area in the Royal Avenue Gardens. There’ll be lots of family friendly activities including face painting, biscuit decorating and arts and crafts for children of all ages.

The Flavel Church also host fun hands-on pizza and bread making sessions on the Saturday where kids are invited to pop in and get cooking!

Get up and cook – a demonstration for children is held in our Chefs Demonstration Kitchen in the Royal Avenue Gardens on Sunday mornings. So join David Jones, co-owner of Manna from Devon Cooking School and Helen Lloyd for some fun in the kitchen. Free of charge and no booking necessary – just turn up’

To plan your family fun day out, watch out for these & other wonderful kids events each year on our What’s On pages during the festival.
