The Glen Pavillion is the venue for a vintage market and tea dance presented by the charity, Playlist for Life. For gin lovers, there’s a tasting by Fife company, Eden Mill at Grill 48. Kids can learn how to make their own pizza at the pizza-making class, and, for dessert, there’s a cheesecake making class, both at Dine29. Café Wynd is hosting a coffee tasting by Kinross-based coffee experts, Unorthodox Roasters, on Saturday 5 May.
Food-themed art during the weekend includes a food photography exhibition, curated by by Chris Duffy of The Auchtermuchty Food Museum, and local artist, Alan Grieve, will be hosting a food themed colouring wall. Dunfermline Rotary Club’s Young Writer/Photographer competitions will also be on display in the Kingsgate,featuring work from 28 local primary schools and the four Dunfermline area high schools.
For the first time, transport and drinks are combined. The Kingsgate is hosting both a a smoothie bike and the Dapper Drinks prosecco van. The Kingsgate is also the venue for a Fire Station Creative pop up shop, which will display some of the resident artists’ work.
