2015 Celebrates the 5th consecutive year of the Westport Food Festival which will take place over the weekend of September 4 to 6, 2015. The Festival promises to be bigger and better than other years with a host of all-things-culinary!
The 2015 Westport Food Festival will include an action-packed itinerary, with something for everyone even including the little ones. Several other events are scheduled for the three day festival including the Food Village & Fringe Festival taking place on September the 5th at the Octagon, Food Fest Forum, Foody Tours, Bike Buffet, Kids’ Pizza-Making and Mushroom Foraging. Other events over the weekend include live demonstrations from a host of top chefs, bakers and mixologists as well as the exciting Sunday night event called Secret Supper which proved to be hugely popular in 2014! Book your tickets early as this event was sold out last year!
Secret Supper is like ‘Come Dine with Me’ with a twist… Diners buy tickets for a five-course Westport Food Festival ‘taste experience’ meal but nobody knows where they will eat until the night itself, when dining venues will be unveiled at a pre-dinner restaurant lottery, held in a town centre location. Guests will then go to their mystery restaurant for dinner at 7.30pm sharp. After dinner, they will return to the town centre reception venue for the Westport Food Festival Wrap Party, where all diners will score their meal and the winner of the Best Taste Experience in Westport will be crowned. There will be an MC, prizes and music on the night.
More information on each of the events can be found in the Food Festival Menu or on any of the event tabs listed above.
