Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th September
We’ve expanded our Festival of Food for 2018 to include an extended food village, natural beauty area, food demonstrations, music stage, craft brewery, botanical beverages, gardening zone, family foraging and much more!
Open 9.30 am – 5 pm – FREE entry for all and last admission at 4 pm
This year, along with all the family favourites from egg collecting to cow milking, lawn games to action adventure trails across 38 acres, festival-goers will experience an expanded Food Village with over 50 local producers. Take in the Mindful and Nature Area with Mindful Beauty from Sligo, offering yoga sessions for adults & kids.
There’ll be mindful workshops and art installations to feed the soul and enjoy a full programme of cooking events at the Demo Kitchen. Tastings and talks at the Artisan Food Village (including Simons Fish, Corleggy Cheese and Cloonagh Smokin Soul) and Airfield Estate’s harvested produce.
Bands and performers will entertain throughout the Festival at the Music Stage, and enjoy coffee roasting demos by McCabes Roast House, Off the Cuffee Bitters and King of Kefier.
A dedicated Gardening Zone will feature demos and talks from the window box growers to the meadow mowers. This year they are looking for the hottest chilli and encouraging people to bring their homegrown efforts along, with the hope of being crowned “The Chilli King or Queen”.
For those looking to entertain and educate their families, there will be a Sustainable Systems area, which will promote Zero Waste, festival composting, Backwoods cooking and food foraging from Adventure.ie plus natural beauty and cosmetics from Mindful Beauty, Sligo interspersed with fun family friendly games.
