Feast | East Cork Food & Drink Festival
ince last year Feast Cork has stepped up onto the solid foundations created by the Midleton Food Festival over the past fifteen years, and started to build a festival that stretches beyond Midleton to the Victorian seaside town of Youghal and to the stunning seaside jewel of Ballycotton, creating a new focus for a young festival with old values and traditions, designed to celebrate this embarrassment of riches of a region.
Feast Cork 2018 runs from 2nd to 9th September, again based in the market town of Midleton with its rich food heritage but with a strong focus on the wider region, and will once again be a food and drink festival with a sure sense of place.
A festival that happens at harvest time – appropriately for a gathering up and bringing together of the best of what the area has to offer – Feast Cork is a fresh blend of conversations, dinners, markets, foraging, mixology, produce, producers, landscape, heritage and storytelling.
Bringing together a host of hardworking, innovative food producers from all over this landscape that is largely defined by food production and food heritage, Feast Cork is a celebration and showcase that mixes the old and new, the traditional and the innovative.
