Region’s Finest Food and Drink to Be Served up with Gusto as Food Festival Returns to Syston

Save the date – After success in 2019, the Syston Food Gusto Festival returns to the town for a day of the finest food, delicious drink and family entertainment this August.
The Syston Food Gusto Festival will be back in the picturesque setting of Central Park on Saturday 28th August.
The festival will bring a wide variety of artisan food and drink to the area for the second time, serving up locally-produced tantalising treats and decadent delicacies for people to nibble, bite, chew, sip and slurp.
There will be a range of exhibitors, bringing you the region’s best food and drink, who have all been hand-picked for variety, provenance and passion to ensure food lovers are able to experience a taste of the truly different.
The sight, smell and taste of amazing food is accompanied by live music from Sincerely Yours, a 40s, 50s and 60s hits duo who will perform a great set of live music. There will also be fairground rides for the children.
