Airfield Festival of Food 2018

Airfield Estate, Saturday 8th September - Sunday 9th September 2018

This year, along with all the family favourites from egg collecting to cow milking, lawn games to action adventure trails across 38 acres, festival-goers will experience an expanded Food Village with over 50 local producers. Take in the Mindful and Nature Area with Mindful Beauty offering yoga sessions for adults & kids.

There'll be mindful workshops and art installations to feed the soul and enjoy a full programme of cooking events at the Demo Kitchen. Tastings and talks at the Artisan Food Village (including Simon's Fish, Corleggy Cheese and Cloonagh Smokin' Soul) and Airfield Estate's harvested produce.

Bands and performers will entertain throughout the Festival at the Music Stage, and enjoy coffee roasting demos by McCabe's Roast House, Off the Cuffee Bitters and King of Kefier.

A dedicated Gardening Zone will feature demos and talks from the window box growers to the meadow mowers. This year they are looking for the hottest chilli and encouraging people to bring their homegrown efforts along, with the hope of being crowned The Chilli King or Queen.

For those looking to entertain and educate their families, there will be a Sustainable Systems area, which will promote Zero Waste, Festival Composting, Backwoods Cooking and Food Foraging from Adventure.ie, plus natural beauty and cosmetics from Mindful Beauty, interspersed with fun family friendly games.
