West Waterford Festival of Food has been running in Dungarvan and West Waterford annually since 2008 and has become synonymous with fabulous food, fantastic family events and most importantly lots of fun!
about west waterford festival of food
Over the years the festival has been a showcase of the food of the region, as well as being host to some of our top chefs, fresh flavours, interesting influences and good ideas. This is one festival where there is definitely something for everyone - a full children’s programme, foraging trails, bus tours, cooking demos, dining experiences from high end to very casual plus of course our markets. Taste the best of the county with our local Farmer’s Market on Thursday, our weekly Country Market on Friday, the festival’s quayside market on Saturday with a seafood theme, all culminating in our famed Festival Market on Sunday when over 100 stalls fill the town centre to bring you the best of local and Irish artisan food.
We couldn't get by each year without all the wonderful members of the community who help out before and during the festival, see how you can get involved - it'll be fun, we promise!
Our festival's success owes a huge amount to the overwhelming support of the local community, and to our sponsors and local business as well as schools and organisations.
