As 2018 is the 10th Anniversary of this event, we are very proud that A Taste of Donegal Food Festival has now become an integral part of the Summer Season in County Donegal. The Committee feels that the Food Festival has been synonymous with Donegal’s Good Food Story having given many producers the opportunity to promote and showcase their food offerings. Festivals like A Taste of Donegal play a very important role in driving Food Tourism in Ireland by creating the perfect atmosphere where visitors from home and away can meander through the many Food and Drink Exhibitor Stands available and taste and sample products which are new and unfamiliar to them. We now know that visitors are booking their annual vacations around events such as these.
