Festival Village

The heart & soul of the Truffle Kerfuffle

The Festival Village at idyllic Fonty's Pool is THE place to smell, taste, buy and learn about black truffle and Southern Forests wine and produce.

Explore and taste your way through the regional marketplace, buy fresh truffles and gourmet products, sample Southern Forests wine, cider and produce, and dig into delicious truffle-laden food. You'll meet and learn from farmers, truffle growers, winemakers and talented chefs, enjoy live music, cooking and truffle dog demonstrations as well as masterclasses in our bar.

Bringing the kids? We have family activities including the Kid's Cooking School with Sophie Budd.
