A festival for those who have an appreciation of fresh food, great flavours and diverse cultures, it will be a weekend which will promote Galway as a destination for exceptional cuisine, crafts and unique brews and flavours. The event will also highlight the importance of moderation, healthy eating, fitness and wellbeing. Our goal is to achieve this by running this festival as a celebration of the cultures surrounding us in the west of Ireland.
There food offerings from artisan restaurants, organic and fresh food producers and international cuisine, all of which are available both here in Galway and the surrounding counties. It will raise awareness and offer fantastic exposure for the rapidly growing food culture in the west of Ireland. A key feature of the festival will see a big focus on the emerging craft beer and a boutique beverage market where unique brews, interesting flavours, and textures can be enjoyed.
Highlights of the weekend will include cooking demonstrations from celebrity chefs Kevin Dundon and Rachel Allen, creations from the craft brewers collective, scrumptious eats from fantastic food vendors, electric live entertainment and an amazing atmosphere as foodies and craft enthusiasts unite to share passions in the beautiful surroundings of Salthill.
