Bia Lover Festival
Bia Lover is one of the biggest regional food events and attracts thousands of food lovers to Athenry. This free family friendly weekend promises to be a truly enjoyable occasion.
Bia Lover Food Festival returns for the 6th year to celebrate produce, place and people through food and drink on the 22nd and 23rd of June. The festival will showcase Ireland’s fabulously diverse range of food, irrespective of whether you’re a stick-to-what-you-know type or a culinary adventurist.
The festival centrepiece will once again be its’ producer market where food and drink producers showcase their wares. There will be music and dance, a multicultural food tasting, baking competitions, busking competitions, children’s activities and general all round great fun and entertainment.
Established by a group of local volunteers and businesses in 2014, the Bia Lover Food Festival has since grown into a spectacular community celebration and has brought the town of Athenry to life through the West’s evolving food culture.
Last year saw over 50 businesses from all over Ireland taking part and over 10,000 people attending the Producer Market and other events.
