ART EAT Festival Ipswich Waterfront September 2019
A festival is in the making. Be part of it.
Big visions for a new street food and arts festival for Ipswich Waterfront are taking shape as creative producers Iona Hodgson (We Create Projects Ltd) and Daisy Lees (Arts La’Olam) finalise plans and funding for ART EAT 2019.
ART EAT will be an inclusive, vibrant and delicious exploration of creativity and flavour for all the family.
Inspired by flourishing art and super creative catering businesses in Suffolk, ART EAT intends to strengthen the new identity for our town by creating an event which puts Ipswich firmly on East Anglia's cultural map.
ART EAT will see the waterfront bustling with people of all ages enjoying live music, DJs, art installations, street food, art workshops, art exhibitions, and activities for all the family.
The festival will be an opportunity for people to come together and enjoy the Waterfront, attracting visitors who want to discover what’s making the town so unique and such a desirable place to visit, work and live. The festival hopes to attract up to 20,000 visitors over a weekend in September 2019.
Two days of festivities involving as many local organisations, businesses and residents as possible, the event will be carefully curated to ensure existing establishments along the waterfront can contribute to the festival and promote themselves over the weekend. The event will also be part of Ipswich Central's hugely successful Fork Night.
The organisers are currently inviting involvement and sponsorship from local organisations and businesses who would like to harness the many opportunities the festival will offer.
