Food Fleadh Ballina 2017 – bigger and better than previous years

Arrange a date to meet the chef from your favourite restaurant in Ballina and pick their brains for that secret ingredient, watch them get stuck into the hourly cookery demos and tasters along the way. Drinks Demo station featuring the local Connacht Whiskey Distillery Gin, Poitin and vodka.

The very popular cooking classes for the kiddies which went down a treat in previous years, attracting over 80 family’s to the cooking dome will return again with the chosen theme to be decided on! and many more Children events planned throughout the day.

Ballina’s local Framers Market will join the Food Fleadh again this year.  The Farmers Market is a weekly Saturday attraction in the town and it is always great to have local home baking, and freshly grown produce producers included in this annual event, celebrating their hard work throughout the year.

Entertainment by North Mayo’s’ finest Arts and Crafts people,  face painters, live music and dance will also coincide with the food and drinks themes during the day to make this years Food Fleadh an action packed day for all, not to be forgotten.
