Emilia's Summer Pasta Festival returns to Canary Wharf in July

If a heaping portion of pasta is your idea of a good time, there's a food festival happening in July that'll be right up your alley. Emilia's Summer Pasta Festival at the Canary Wharf branch of Emilia's Crafted Pasta was a huge hit last year, with more than 2,500 pasta-loving attendees joining in the fun. Its success means that the event is back for 2024, taking place on 21st July. 

The street food-style festival sees the restaurant's outside terrace transformed into a bustling marketplace, with stalls serving up delicious pasta dishes all day long. There will be a dedicated pasta picnic area kitted out with deckchairs, blankets, and benches. It's not just great food that you can enjoy whilst you're here either – attendees can expect live music throughout the day, as well as an exciting range of workshops and activities. You can join a wine and pasta pairing masterclass, learn about which sauces work best with which pasta shapes, or even have a go at making your own pasta to take home and enjoy. 

Best of all, the event is free to attend, but registering in advance is recommended because it's expected to get busy. You'll also need to pay if you'd like to attend one of the pasta-making masterclasses. Book your free ticket for entry and find links to book the workshops on Eventbrite.
