The Great Trentham Spudfest is here

Potatoes are one of those miracle vegetables that taste good in just about everything. Fries? Check. Shepherd’s Pie? Check. Roast Veggies? Check. You get the point. Well, it only makes sense to have a whole festival dedicated to them.

Celebrating all there is about this starch-filled treat is the annual Great Trentham Spudfest – oh yes, it’s a thing – which is set for May 4th this year.

Get excited for some spudtastic food, music, games, entertainment and activities – I bet you never thought potatoes could be this much fun!!

This festival celebrates the spirit of the community and recognise Trentham’s potato-growing heritage, so you are invited to come along and join in! It is an opportunity for visitors and the local community to participate in a wide range of exciting spud-based activities and have a spudtacular time.

Once again, the usually shy, humble and bashful potato bursts free from life underground and basks in the limelight for festivities in its honour.

Some of this year’s highlights include:
-Market stalls, great food and beverages
-Spud Cart Derby
-Races and games for all ages
-Spuds for sale from local farmers – can I get a ‘hell yeah!’ for shopping local?
-Free music and entertainment all day
-Cool Country Classic Cars Display
-Animal Petting Farm
-Spud Digger Hut bus tours
-Tractor Pull

The festival is free to attend and is running from 10am – 4pm on Saturday May 4th. So pack up the fam and head on down to the annual Spudfest in Trentham.
