North Devon Food Festival – Barnstaple Pannier Market.

North Devon FOODfest is a celebration of everything the area has to offer in terms of food and drink. It brings together the finest ingredients, dishes, chefs, mouth-watering flavours and thirst-quenching delights.
A collection of well known North Devon food businesses will be showcased once again at this year's FOODfest - to show that locally sourced sustainable produce matters to the people who live here.
For those who love food, this is the event to visit for free tasters, popular stands and a lively atmosphere.
Last year was a real treat - famous names from the best eateries in North Devon lined up to host demonstrations and a range of delicious cocktails were shaken up between sets.

Flaming Tar barrels at Ottery St Mary.

Ottery Tar Barrels 2019: A phenomenal destination to light up your eyes just like the barrels’ do! 4pm-11:30pm.
Ottery St. Mary in Devon, England is renowned globally for the Tar Barrels event since the 17th century. As a result, Flaming Tar Barrels are carried through the streets of Ottery St Mary annually to the delight of the residents and visitors. Some weeks prior to the event which is held on November 4th, the barrels are soaked with tar, they are then lit outside each of the pubs and as soon as they are in flames, they are hoisted up onto the backs and shoulders of the local people. A total of seventeen barrels are lit over the course of the evening at the watch of thousands of people in the street. Women and boys are not left out of the event and in the afternoon and early evening, they have their barrels, but as the evening progresses, the barrels get larger weighing up to 30kgs by midnight.
