THE debut Dumfries International Food Festival will take place this summer.

On June 5 in Dock Park there will be a community celebration of diverse food, drink and culture with the hopes of putting Dumfries on the Scottish street food map.

Organised by Massive Outpouring of Love (MOOL), the Dumfries and Galloway Refugee charity, ‘DISSFEST’ will be a family-friendly festival which aims to showcase both local and international produce and flavours, as well as educating and promoting sustainable, environmentally-friendly food.

However, DISSFEST is not just about food, but about bringing people together, community integration and celebration.

Launching it yesterday, chairman of MOOL David Formstone said: “We are delighted that our vision for launching the first Dumfries International Street Food Festival has been announced today.

“We can’t wait to shine a spotlight on some of the amazing community organisations we have here, but also welcome makers, bakers and of course eager tasters to the festival.

“I know the people of Dumfries will get right behind us and we can’t wait to spread some much needed joy after a tough 24 months for everyone.”

There are a range of opportunities for local businesses and community organisations to get involved but space is limited.
