Welcome to Colonsay’s annual Food & Drink Festival


2020 event sadly cancelled


With gin and whisky tastings, foraging walks, cooking classes and demonstrations, baking and preserving sessions, Colonsay's annual Food and Drink Festival programme has something for everyone - including guided walks and children's activities to help visitors discover Colonsay's wildlife and natural beauty. 

Sadly, Covid put paid to this year's event, but we hope to be back in gear for next year - from 9 - 23 Oct 2021. To get a flavour of what's likely to be on, 2019's exciting events can be viewed on the programme below.  Please select "monthly" to see a calendar of all events.
