A Taste of the Borders Fair

In 2019 we introduced an exciting new feature at the BVAC Classic,  a special ‘Taste of the Borders’ marquee where you could taste and buy locally produced food and drink.  This was a very popular addition with the opportunity to meet the makers and take home some of the finest food and drink from across the region.    

If you are interested in being part of the 2022 BVAC please enter your interest on the form below.
