We Think the Island’s Food Scene Rocks!
So We’re Bringing Everyone Together to Celebrate.

The Great Wight Bite is taking over the stunning Northwood House, Cowes for a weekend of gastronomic indulgence and cracking entertainment.

We will be jam packed full of delicious street food traders from across the Island and the south coast, as well as some brilliant shopping from the island’s best artisan food, drink and craft producers. Sit back and watch the island’s very best talent on our Chefs Demo Stage hosted TV presenter Chris Bavin and welcoming drinks broadcaster, writer and Gurnard local Helena Nicklin

Our Masterclass Kitchen is where to find local food and drink producers showing off their talents and the Little Chefs Den is the place for budding cooks with a range of amazing classes to book curated by The Little Gloster. All served up with a huge side of celebrity and great live music. No need to leave the pooch at home the Great Wight Bite is dog friendly too!

If you live on the mainland why not make a weekend of it and set sail for The Great Wight Bite with our partner Red Funnel Ferries. We are proud to support Isle of Wight Foodbank for this year’s event.
