Perthshire based marketing agency, Volpa, has announced it will launch OOfest, a Perthshire wide food festival this July.
The company, which received Scotland’s top gong for event marketing at the most recent Scottish Event Awards, is so passionate about the vast array of produce available on their doorstep in Perthshire, they felt it was about time to bring this fabulous fare to the masses or, more to the point, bring the masses to this fabulous fare!
OOfest, which will be a celebration of all the good things Perthshire has to offer, will be a month long festival of foodie events hosted by some of Scotland's best producers, markets, restaurateurs and people who are absolutely passionate about food.
Tricia Fox, festival director said “We’ve got some amazing produce in Perthshire and we really ought to be shouting about it. We want to bring together everyone to create a festival of foodie events that will truly tantalise the taste buds and send visitors to Perthshire back to their kitchens, bags bulging, with a renewed passion for local produce.”
The festival will run during the month of July and organisers are confident it will become a key feature of this year’s Perth 800 celebrations. Many food businesses and events across Perthshire have already committed to taking part, including Perthshire Chamber of Commerce’s Perthshire on a Plate at Perth Concert Hall and the Scone Game Fair which will be cornerstone events of OOfest’s launch on the first weekend in July.
Other participating events and businesses include Brig Farm Shop, Carse Finest, Auchterarder Farmer’s Market, and Fern Cottage Restaurant in Pitlochry.
