Food producers and key personalities in the growing Artisan food industry in Waterford are to take centre stage at the August Racing Festival in Tramore with the last day of the four day meeting, Sunday, August 14, dedicated to showcasing local produce and producers.
The four day-long celebration begins on August 11 and is expected to draw over 20,000 to the seaside town this year, generating €3 million plus for the local and regional economy. This year, all 28 races are sponsored, ensuring a race prize fund of €300,000
An Artisan food hall, ‘A Taste of Tramore’, has been added to the action-packed festival programme for the first time this year and it will showcase the many food enterprises in the region throughout the Family Fun Afternoon the final day of the festival.
The focus on Artisan produce during the programme on Sunday, August 14, will make it an extra special final day of the Festival, Racecourse General Manager, Sue Phelan, promised.
“We try to use as much local produce as possible throughout the year and this year sees the introduction of the Taste of Tramore Marquee. During the afternoon, racegoers are invited to enjoy cookery demonstrations from Jeni Pim, Jens Kitchen and nutrition talks from Helen Byrne, Help2Health and much more. We encourage people to come along and sample locally produced food from our Artisan food producers,” she added.
