Septembers in Dundee are always particularly special thanks to the city’s annual Flower and Food Festival.
The event, which is set in the beautiful Camperdown Park, takes place over three days and is chock-a-block with things to see and do, from watching demonstrations from some of the UK’s top celebrity chefs and listening to live music to admiring the award winning flowers, gardening displays and produce – there really is something for everyone.
The event is child friendly too with craft tents and kid friendly displays that really engage little ones and spark an interest in nature.
A highlight from this year was the scarily good dinosaur display designed by Angus based business Rococo Gardens, which won the Lord Provost’s Trophy at the event. The Jurassic themed display thoroughly thrilled my two little ones who spent the rest of the weekend practicing their own dinosaur roars.
My favourite part of the weekend was taking a stroll through the festivals glorious food tent. Filled with some of Scotland’s best produce from craft beer and gin to artisan chocolate and jams – the tent is a absolute heaven for foodies!
My visit to the Dundee Flower & Food Festival was a complete joy and I’m already looking forward to next year.
