Taste of Nairn Postponed Due to Coronavirus

A three-day food and drink festival has been postponed to the Autumn due to the Coronavirus.

But it will still welcome Great British Bake-Off finalist Alice Fevronia who has agreed to still attend the event.

Taste of Nairn was due to take place in the seaside town between 3-5 April, however its organisers, Nairn BID, have taken the decision to delay the event until October 9-11.

The event which is in its second year will still include a mini music and street food festival, an artisan market, a farmers’ market and many other events throughout the town.

Nairn BID manager Janis Maclean explained that there was no option but to delay:

“The team working on Taste of Nairn are devastated that we are having to postpone, but under the circumstances we feel this is the best course of action and the good news is that we will still be welcoming Alice Fevronia.”

She added:

“Other than the date, we don’t intend much to change.

“We have contacted all our traders and suppliers and the businesses that intended to get involved and what has been great is that everyone has been understanding and everyone is planning to still remain involved for October.

“These are difficult times for the businesses and the community, but most of all what we have seen are people supporting each other and finding ways to deal with what is an unprecedented situation.”

Speaking on Nairn BID’s other events which include small business breakfasts, business workshops and the one-day Wheels of Nairn which is a classic and modern vehicle show due to take place in September, Janis added:

“At the moment these events are still going ahead.

“We will continue to follow government advice and if anything changes will notify our members and the public as soon as possible.”
