The Countdown is on to Westport Food Festival & Flagship Event The Banquet

Tastings during the chef demonstations at Westport Food Festival

It’s the final countdown with just two weeks to go until Westport Food Festival which takes place from June 24th -26th. The flagship event is The Banquet on Friday 24th June – a fabulous get together feast celebrating everything that is good about Mayo food. Led by festival chairman Eoin McDonnell, this four course feast for the senses is a team endeavour by some of Westport’s finest chefs, combining their talents for this one night only.

Local and Irish food is the main focus of The Banquet and the menu will feature some familiar products as well as highlighting hidden gems as the chefs reveal their secrets. The gala evening takes place in Hotel Westport and includes the crowning of Best Artisan Producer as part Westport Food Festival’s support for artisan food.

It will be a night to remember with the very best in music and food. Classical fingers tickling the ivories will kick things off and after The Banquet guests will be invited to dance the night away to a live band. Don’t miss out on the foodie event of the year by booking your ticket now!

Tickets for The Banquet cost €45 per person and are available through Hotel Westport on 098 25122 or tables of ten can be booked online via Eventbrite.
