Waterford Harvest Festival
There is something to suit all tastes with cookery demonstrations, food tours, tastings, workshops and restaurant trails. This midweek menu is rounded off by a wonderful weekend of events. These events include a picnic, market areas throughout the streets, a Beer Fest and garden. All events bask in the glory of the delicious good, clean food on offer in a city surrounded by such rich resources as The Bread Basket, The Golden Vale and The Atlantic Ocean.
Since pagan times, the harvest festival has been a time to celebrate the crop, for family and the wider community to relax and enjoy the fruits of their labours. Waterford Harvest Festival recreates a modern version of this traditional feast and celebratory period, with foodie fun and educational events for all and children’s entertainment across the city. The festival takes place in September and encourages people from Waterford, the rest of Ireland and beyond to gather together and experience an exciting range of culinary delights.
