West Waterford Festival of Food 2024 traders application form

The 15th annual West Waterford Festival of Food will take place from Friday 19th April to Sunday 21st April 2024 and the festival team is currently busy putting together another amazing programme of events.

We are now taking expressions of interest for our markets, which will take place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st April 2024.The highlight of our festival every year, our Sunday Market attracts in excess of 30,000 people to the town. This market incorporates our local Farmer's and Country Markets as well as many more traders. The emphasis is on local and artisan producers, so priority will be given to traders from County Waterford.

Our Saturday market has grown hugely in recent years, with record numbers in attendance in 2023.  We also have an extended programme of children's and family events which will take place at Dungarvan Castle right at the end of the quay.  This will include food demos, Glanbia family fun including a mobile petting farm, wobbly circus, The Cool Food School, sensory cooking class, a dog show and children's funfair. The WLR Roadcaster will also broadcast from Dungarvan throughout the weekend and there will be live music and entertainment. 

During the application process you can indicate if you prefer to trade at the Saturday market, Sunday market or both.

The closing date for expressions of interest is 16th February 2024.  Offers of pitches will be made and invoices issued during March.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 1. Applications from vendors using gas will not be considered.  2. This application form is a registration of interest only and trading at West Waterford Festival of Food is limited and not guaranteed.
