This morning is extremely busy in Enniscorthy. A whole new food village has sprung up at Market Square – extending into the side streets – the fifth annual Rockin Food Festival is happening until Monday. We have been out and about early to give you an early flavour.
Liz Hore is Enniscorthy District Manager and also a member of Taste for Wexford and she is going to help us find out where the food comes from and why the Enniscorthy Rockin Food Festival is so important for advancing the cause for Wexford food producers.
The 2019 festival programme is full of new and exciting events and activities for all the family and large crowds are anticipated at all events.
Over 80 vendors will host the much loved Artisan Food and Craft Market and take over the streets. There is also a brand new schedule of free cookery demonstrations, tastings and health and wellness talks in the Food Marquee and a range of food fringe events and farm visits.
There is endless rock ‘n’ roll talent with over 30 free gigs in 14 venues across the town. There is an outdoor main stage and dance floor in Market Square for jamming throughout the weekend creating a buzzing atmosphere throughout Enniscorthy.
“Don’t forget we are celebrating the 850th anniversary of the arrival of the Normans and there are events happening at Enniscorthy Castle. Look out for the Norman names posted up around the town!”
Enniscorthy District Manager LIZ HORE is enjoying her last gig in that role and she told DAN WALSH all about the Rockin Food Festival and what’s it means to food producers and tourism across Co. Wexford.
