Have you ever fancied entering your beautiful home-grown or allotment-grown fruit or veg in a Produce Show? Well now’s your chance! There is also the return of the popular Cliftonville Bake-Off, as well as competitions for jams and pickles, and other home fares, including flower growing and arranging.

You can also sample and browse amongst our terrific range of arts, crafts, food, drink, homewares and lifestyle stalls, both in our large community marquees, as well as at the outside trade stands.

Throughout the day there will be experts on-hand so you can learn how to keep your very own chickens, or even bees, or simply grow some herbs, vegetables and flowers. At the CLIFFtalks marquee there will be a full programme of cookery demonstrations from experienced bakers & cooks, gardeners, and our celebrity chef, all for free!
