The programme for the free-to-enter Enniscorthy Rockin’ Food Festival has just been announced. The festival was recently shortlisted for Ireland’s Best Cultural Experience and Ireland’s Best Tourism Initiative.
Some of the acts set to hit the outdoor Main Stage and Rock ’n’ Roll Gig Trail include The Hicksville Bombers, The Revolutionaries, and Sharnae May & The Mayhems.
There will be over 100 food, drink and craft vendors taking over Enniscorthy’s streets for the free Artisan Festival Market, including some delicious vegan and free-from options. Festival goers can stop by the Food Marquee and check out the program of free cookery demos, tastings and talks — it will come as little surprise that this is the part we’re really excited about!
The 2019 schedule has some fantastic new features and events, including the High in the Sky G&T event — take in the panoramic views of Enniscorthy from aboard a ferris wheel whilst enjoying a Jackford Gin and some Taste Wexford nibbles (where do we sign up?). There’ll also be a live bee showcase, craft beer and chocolate pairing, a goat’s milk ice-cream demo, a talk about free range escargot (complete with tasting!) and plenty of other food-themed events.
There is something for everyone; younger festivalgoers will be kept busy with the schedule of children’s events. They can enjoy interactive science workshops, kayaking sessions, cooking classes, yoga, rooftop Ancient East storytelling, slime making and lots more family fun.
Furthermore, The Enniscorthy Arts Trail (E.A.T) will be making their debut at Rockin’ Food, featuring hugely throughout the weekend. Their program includes a range of free pop-up galleries, children’s doodle studios, street projections and teaser drama productions.
The Enniscorthy Rockin’ Food Festival runs from Friday 2nd to Monday 5th August 2019. Find more information here.
