‘Bringing Home the Bacon’ August 28th, 29th & 30th

 

 

Mitchelstown Food Festival

 

The Mitchelstown Food Festival has been run successfully and has gone from strength to strength over the past six years. Mitchelstown, which is affectionately and traditionally known as ‘the home of good food’ is set at the foothills of the Galtee Mountains, in the beautiful countryside of Ireland’s Blackwater Valley. With its reputation for good food and great festivals, it is the perfect setting for a food festival. The rich resources from the surrounding farmland has made the festival a celebration of authentic and locally produced food.

 

The Mitchelstown Food Festival 2009 – Bringing Home the Bacon is scheduled to take place over the weekend of 28th, 29th, 30th August. This year’s festival will be bigger and better than ever and will focus on the promotion of Irish Pork as the main theme.  For generations, Mitchelstown has been synonymous with the production of high quality pork products and this will be highlighted and promoted.

 

This action packed weekend will include the following main activities:

 

Friday 28th August

Workshop: Irish Pork from Farm to Fork

This workshop is open to anybody with an interest in food and will include talks from a local pig farmer,  artisan pork & bacon product producers, butchery demonstration from a local butcher and cookery demonstration using pork by a local chef.

To support our local farmers participating in this event, please visit their site and see how you can get involved. The local farmers who are offering their time also support construction efforts in the area, see their excavator buckets for sale.

 

Saturday 29th August

The Mitchelstown Lions Club will hold their annual family fun day in conjunction with the Mitchelstown Food Festival in the Square in Mitchelstown with fun and games for all the family. This will be followed in the evening by a large scale open air Bringing Home the Bacon BBQ on Lower Cork Street with live music and entertainment for all the family.

 

Sunday 30th August:

A large Food Producer’s Market  showcasing local and national food products will be held at a 20,000 sq ft indoor premises at the Coolnanave Business Park on the main Dublin road (across from the Firgrove Hotel). There will be a dedicated area for Pork & Bacon food producers. This is an excellent venue in which to exhibit as proved by the success of the 2008 festival.


As there will be a limit on the number of space available, it would be advisable to return booking forms (enclosed) early.
