Waterford Harvest Festival 2022

Ready for food done right?

Harvest Festival is back for its 13th year as one of Ireland’s leading food festivals. Mark your calendars for a weekend more Waterford than shellakybookies and loving blaas.

Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th September 2022

This year, GIY is bringing sustainability right to the heart of the festivities, showcasing Waterford’s rich food heritage and celebrating our diverse restaurants, eateries and producers. The best of Waterford’s food and drink will be centre stage, showcasing that there is more to our food culture than blaas, red lead and crubeens (as delicious and all as they are).

The weekend-long celebration will take place from Saturday 10th to Sunday 11th of September and will see the city come to life with markets, special dining events, panel discussions and plenty more.
