50,000 foodies Savour Kilkenny’s fare
AN army of more 50,000 people foodies descended on Kilkenny last weekend to attend the Savour Kilkenny Food Festival.
The massive numbers gave a huge boost to the local economy.
The five-day food festival culminated in a two-day market on The Parade at the weekend with demonstrations, stalls and lots of family activities.
Director of Services with Kilkenny County Council Tim Butler described the event as a “resounding” for the Savour Kilkenny organisers, and for the city. He told KCLR the local authority is delighted to be associated with the festival, which benefits from grant funding.
