Get ready to celebrate local food culture at Trøndelag Food Festival 2024!

27 June 2024Over 200 local food producers are expected to take part in Trøndelag Food Festival and Trondheim Brewery Festival, to be held on 1-3 August 2024 for visitors and locals to enjoy the culinary wonders of Trondheim-Trøndelag, European Region of Gastronomy awarded 2022.

From Fosen peninsula’s mussels to reindeer from the high plains of Røros, visitors will be able to taste a vast array of top-quality products from across the region, alongside a great variety of locally brewed beers, and thus discover why Trondheim-Trøndelag is one of the most interesting culinary destinations in Northern Europe.

But besides the possibility of wandering around the amazing local producers’ stands, Trøndelag Food Festival will offer a wide range of hands-on activities for all ages and palates. With a fully dedicated area for children and teens, youngsters will be able to engage in all sorts of activities related to farming, cooking and exploring fresh produce. All that it takes to become the producers, chefs, front-of-house, and food experts of the future!

During the festival, partner hotel Britannia will host a unique selection of classes and courses to help participants understand local food traditions, as well as new food trends, while using high quality local produce and practicing food sustainability. Featuring Trondheim’s best chefs, teachers and artisans, these activities will span from foraging, mixing, baking and cooking, to cheese-making and urban farming.

The event will also engage great local chefs such as Christopher Davidsen who, on 31 July, will open the doors of his restaurant Tollbua to host a Chef’s Dinner together with Iceland’s celebrity chefs Thrainn Freyr Vigfusson (Michelin-starred), and Viktor Örn Andrésson (Bocuse d´Or bronze winner, 2017), as well as award-winning bartender, Andre Kvilhaug from Pjolter and Punsj (Stavanger, Norway). As one of the main events of Trøndelag Food Festival, this culinary celebration will include street food stalls offering Trøndelag’s best ingredients, entertainment, live music and many surprises.

On 1 and 2 August, a historical tour of Stiftsgården (Trondheim’s royal residence) will be organised, followed by a delicious lunch made by the wonderful chefs-couple Reneé Fagerhøi and Thomas Borgan. Inspired by historical royal meals, the lunch will also be based on top local ingredients.

Chef Håvard Werkland, who represented Norway and won 3rd prize at the Bocuse d’Or Europe 2024 (held in Trondheim in March), and will be competing in the Bocuse d’Or 2025 in Lyon, will also be one of Trøndelag Food Festival’s top chefs this year.

Finally, in occasion of Trøndelag Food Festival, the Best Products of the Year in various categories will be chosen among the expected exhibitors by a jury of food and beverage experts. The winning products for 2024 will be announced on 31 July and, during the festival, they will be labelled with the Årets produkt 2024 sticker (Product of the Year 2024) to be easily recognizable.
