The Rockin’ Food and Fruit Festival is the perfect cocktail of everything that is brilliant about the summer with food, music and lots of family events, and it returns to Enniscorthy over the August Bank Holiday.
The programme includes a huge range of free events such as Artisan Food and a Craft Market, a Food Marquee and a superb line-up of celebrity chefs, including Kevin Dundon, Zack Gallagher, Paul Hynes and Trudy Power from Trudie’s Kitchen, to name a select quartet, with tastings and special guests.
The Live Outdoor Stage at Market Square will be booming all weekend with special guest dancers who are the heart and soul of the festival.
The Rock and Roll Town Gig Trail provides a huge choice of live music at 14 venues around town and at the Rockshore Main Stage in Market Square.
The Midnight Crawlers and The Due-Tones are arriving in the shadow of Vinegar Hill from the UK, Memphis Lee and the Creepers are a five-piece band from south Wales, Barry Darcy is an Ireland’s Got Talent finalist, Irish Elvis is one of Ireland’s multi-award winning tributes to the King- Elvis Presley, and many others.
The advice from the organising committee is to take a stroll through the medieval streets of Enniscorthy and savour the very best of both local and national produce as chefs and food producers have the finest fare of offer.
