Invitation to exhibit at major food and drink events

Monday, 19 February 2018

Three major events will allow local food and drink producers to showcase their wares to thousands of customers.

The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture is inviting food and drink producers to apply for stands at the Southern Agricultural Show, the Royal Manx Agricultural Show and the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival.

Through the Programme for Government, the Isle of Man Government promises to support existing business to succeed and encourage new businesses to set up.

Geoffrey Boot MHK, Minister for Environment, Food and Agriculture, said:

‘These three events attract huge crowds, eager to sample and purchase Isle of Man food and drink, and are a great forum for established and new businesses to promote high quality local products.’

The Southern Show is held on the 28 and 29 July at Great Meadow, Castletown; the Royal Show on 10 and 11 August at Knockaloe; and the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival on 15 and 16 September at the Villa Marina Gardens.

Food and drink exhibited should be grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked or smoked in the Isle of Man or, where processed, contain ingredients from the Island.

Producers can download application forms from (shows) and (festival), ring 685856 or email

The deadline for applications is 30 April 2018.
