Businesses of all shapes and sizes are invited to get involved in the Isle of Man’s largest Food & Drink Festival with sponsorship packages to suit all budgets.

This summer’s event will showcase the Island’s finest producers and their culinary creations at the Villa Marina Gardens in Douglas on 16 and 17 September.

Last year, more than 7,000 food fans attended the two-day celebration which incorporates live music and cooking demonstrations in a relaxed family friendly atmosphere.

A range of sponsorship packages are available ranging from £1,000 to £15,000, all providing a great opportunity to be associated with the crowd pleasing event.

The packages come in three flexible options covering different levels of representation at the event, its promotional literature and website.

The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture (DEFA), which runs the festival, will again use it to champion sustainability with all visitors and exhibitors encouraged to avoid unnecessary single-use plastic.

The Island’s food scene is flourishing and last year several of our food producers on the Island were successful at the Great Taste Awards 2022. The Awards are the largest and most trusted accreditation scheme which showcases local food and drink produce on a global scale.

Anyone who wants to find out more about sponsorship opportunities can contact the Isle of Man Food & Drink Team on 01624 687520, or email hayden.armour2@gov.im.
