Eel Food Safari
This is your chance to taste eel or at least eel inspired food and drink. Take a look at what was on offer in 2018 to give you a flavour of what to expect in 2019.
The festival weekend always launches with our amazing Eel Food Safari which runs across all four days of the Eel Festival. Some of the finest restaraunts, cafes and other food related businesses in Ely put on their thinking caps and create an impressive line up of dishes and beverages including or inspired by eels and 2018 was no exception.
This year we saw our biggest Safary yet as we extended to Littleport, just a few miles outside Ely. In addition, we developed a mini Riverside Eel Food Safari alongside Ely's Waterside so there were even more ways to participate in this quirkly, themed culinary experience.
We were delighted to welcome Whizzle as our sole sponsor for this year's Eel Food Safari. Locally based Whizzle are suppliers of prints and embroiders work, club & school wear and have been providing the community in Ely for over 10 years. They have cleverly embroidered our Eel Food Safari logo this year and they were displayed at all participating venues. Check out our Facebook page and see our videos from when Ellie the Eel went whizzing around our Safari in various modes of transport!
