Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…
The Lincoln Street Food Festival is always a highlight in the city’s cultural calendar whenever it visits.
Foodies can look forward to the event returning on Thursday to Sunday, September 19 to 22, when everyone will be able to tuck into a tempting selection of international delicacies as well as favourites from closer to home.
Spanish, Greek, Chinese, Mexican, French, Polish and Thai dishes will all be available, offering foods such as a hog roast, souvlaki, gyros, noodles, baklava, cheeses and sweet treats.
Lincoln BIG has teamed-up with Market Place Europe to bring the festival back to the city.
Andy Pidgen, Market Place Europe’s operations manager, said: “The people of Lincoln always give us a warm welcome to their fantastic city and this is our final visit to the city this season, so we urge them to make sure to pay us a visit in the High Street.
“We have some fantastic traders joining us again and there will definitely be something for everyone to enjoy at this fantastic family friendly event.”
