The Northern Ireland Potato Festival
The Northern Ireland Annual Potato Festival takes place on the first Saturday in October each year.
Celebrating our rich potato history this festival is a must for everyone who loves the humble spud with a fun programme of activities and events in the grounds of the Causeway Hotel.
Now in its 5th year, the line-up boasts a debut display by 'The Grass Lads' on the grass roof of the Giant's Causeway Visitor Centre, cookery demonstrations & talks, bouncy castles, artisan food and drink producers, crafters, potato inspired games and a petting farm.
Cutting Edge Helicopters will be back in the air again offering spectacular helicopter sightseeing flights, and the festival organisers have launched a raffle offering a free flight for three lucky spectators.
