Cong Food Village was established in January 2015 to help educate youth, community and visitors all about, local food. Supporting local farmers and producers is key to this incentive. Organisers hope that celebrating this wonderful food culture will contribute to a sense of community spirit and togetherness.
Regular workshops are held in schools and venues around the community with forages, dinners and events also included in the programme to promote awareness on how good food can be used as a focal point for bringing people together.
This is our second food festival and in those two short years of existence, Cong Food Village has been named runner-up in the European Destination of Excellence (EDEN), and been named as fourth Best Foodie Destination in Ireland.
We hope Cong Food Village will be a fun and educational way to showcase the wonderful produce of the West of Ireland. We are passionate about food and are delighted to share this passion with you.
We would like to thank our sponsors and all of our participants, without whom this festival would simply remain a dream.
Finally, enjoy the festival, don’t be afraid to get involved and most importantly, have fun!
