August's Trio of Events!
August is a month full of events! We have (for the first time!) our Classic Car Show on the 3rd August, the Food & Drink Festival on the 10th August and the Cannonbawz Run Launch on the 24th August.
Classic Car Show
Get into gear, as we bring you our first ever classic car show! The event takes place on Saturday 3rd August 2019 and you can find the vintage vehicles on Commerce Street, South Street and the Plainstones between 10am and 3pm.
The classic car show will bring a variety of vehicles, including vintage cars and fire engines, making it a perfect event in any automobile enthusiasts’ calendar.
Food & Drink Festival
Tummies get ready to rumble!! Join us for the 9th Annual Food & Drink Festival on the 10th August from 10am-5pm.
The festival is going to be “bigger and better” than before, and this year in a change to previous years we are running it as a dual centre attraction! Stalls will be spread between Elgin Town Hall and St. Giles Church, only few minutes’ walk from each other, making it the ideal way to work off all those free samples between locations.
As well as all the stalls, we have lots more to keep the whole family entertained, including Hopscotch Magic who are back after they went down a storm during the Scottish Theme Day, and Mrs Bubbles (the Clown) will be making her debut modelling balloons to keep the kids happy! Plus we are delighted that the ever popular Scottish Agricultural College will be back with their tractor and milking cow! The Emergency Services will also be attending on the day so you can have a chat and a look around their vehicles!
Always a firm favourite– the Tasty Tipple area is returning and can be found on the Stage at the Town hall. There will be an amazing selection of hand crafted locally made alcoholic drinks ranging from Whisky’s to Gins.
There will also be demonstrations throughout the day in both the Town Hall and St Giles Church! In the Town Hall we will also be joined by Our House of Spice who will be making a Pheasant Curry with their homemade spice blends- they are also an exhibitor so if their curry tickles your taste buds you can buy their spice blends to take home! Over in the Tasty Tipple we will have The Spirit Embassy and Gordon & MacPhail doing some demos and tastings. And as everyone loves something sweet we have Karen from Karen’s Cakes doing some cake decorating demos over in the St Giles Church and Slimming World will be showing us how to make Slimming World Banoffee Pie- delicious and good for you?! I’ll take seconds please!
If an abundance of stalls covering all things food and beverage wasn’t enough – there will be artists and crafters showcasing their wares on the day! As always, there really is something for everyone, and their taste buds, at this event! What’s more – it’s completely FREE (yes free!) to come along, as if you needed any more reason to attend!
Cannonbawz Run Launch
On the 24th August, The Cannonbawz Run is starting off on the Plainstones! There will be music and entertainment from 9am and stay until 11am to cheer on the drivers as they set off on their fundraising journey!
