Local Food Producers Take Centre Stage at Tramore’s Racing Festival this August
Tramore will be the centre of an equestrian celebration this August from the 11th to the 14th. The August Racing Festival in Tramore is set to draw over 20,000 visitors to the area, generating over €3 million for local businesses.
Food producers and key members of the local artisan food industry will be at the heart of the festival with the final day, Sunday 14th, dedicated entirely to their work and products.
For the first time there will be a huge emphasis on local suppliers and producers with an artisan food hall ‘A Taste of Tramore’ showcasing the best food businesses in the region.
Racecourse General Manager Sue Phelan says the added focus on artisan produce will make the festival extra special. “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, Jen’s 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.”
