Art Eat Festival
Art Eat Festival was a two-day visual art and street food festival celebrating all things creative and delicious with taste, sight and sound sensations all along the 1 mile stretch of Ipswich Waterfront. The festival saw thousands of visitors from across Suffolk and East Anglia enjoy the vibrant, colourful, tasty, fun-packed and feel-good weekend. The festival was free and included two full days of music across 4 stage areas, 24 free art workshops, a diverse community performance programme, international food traders, outdoor bars as well as a funfair.
