THE Westport Food Festival will not be taking place this year.
Chairman Eoin McDonnell and the festival committee regret that for a combination of reasons the festival won’t be going ahead in 2019.
In a statement they thanked everyone who has been involved in the festival since it began.
It has been a real celebration of food in Westport, drawing together producers, eateries of all descriptions and people who are just interested in food and its provenance.
Said Eoin McDonnell: “Westport Food Festival has been a mainstay of the summer calendar for the last eight years. It has played an important part in highlighting Westport as a centre of good food and provided opportunities for local producers to develop their business.
“Thanks to everyone who has so generously helped out to make it possible.”
