News & Events
In its 15th year, Midleton Food and Drink Festival 2017 is building on a strong foundation. Events will run from 4th to 10th September with the family favorite Street Festival on Saturday 9th September.
In the 15 years since it was conceived, the festival has continued to evolve and its attendance has grown year on year. The rebranding of the festival this year will strengthen its identity and ensure Feast receives regional and national promotion. The addition of a number of fringe events in the east cork area leading up to and on the market day will widen the catchment of the festival by including the surrounding areas. This will result in the growth of the festival beyond its traditional focal point of the town of Midleton. This addition is cemented by the festival’s rebranding as Feast-East Cork Food & Drink Festival.read more
