The 4th annual Galway Food Festival – celebrating Galway’s Culinary Landscape – will take place on the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend 2015. Join them from Thursday 2 to Monday 6 April for five festive days of open-air markets, food trails and family fun.
Last year, over 70,000 people attended Galway Food Festival events including the festival food village at Spanish Arch; the Galway, Moycullen and Woodquay Country Markets and a packed programme of talks, tours, tastings, demonstrations and workshops involving over 100 restaurants, food outlets and food producers located across the city and County.
This year’s festival will see the return of all the above, along with lots of new and exciting additions. Plans for 2015 include an extended food trail, a food-truck village in the West End, a new location for the ever popular cooking demonstrations and an expansion of the eclectic programme of Food Tours (this year including trips to the Aran Islands, trips to the Burren and visits to farms, producers and craft brewers). A Seaside Foraging trip will be be included for those interested in ‘digging for their dinner’, there will be lots of in-house events including pop ups, cocktail classes, wine tastings and a comprehensive schedule of talks on a range of topical issues in the food and drinks industry will be included. Plans are also being made to host events at a number of surprise locations throughout Galway City and County – so watch this space!
The 2015 Festival will also seek to build on Galway’s emergence as a Food Capital of the Wild Atlantic Way through the extended involvement of food producers, suppliers and outlets located along the Western Seaboard in the festival’s markets and events programme.
