As an early gift, we have weekend tickets to give away to readers!
It’s about time that Letterkenny had its own Christmas market, and this year our festive wishes are coming true.
For two days only, a sparkling celebration of over 40 food and Christmas craft stalls will pop up in the heart of the town on Saturday December 2nd and Sunday 3rd.
It’s set to be a wonderful two days out for families and friends and weekend tickets are already top of our wish lists. Guaranteed guests are Santa, Mrs Claus and Elves, who will add to the merriment from their special grotto.
Excited yet? The good news is we have two weekend tickets to give away to Donegal Woman readers – click here to check out our Facebook post for details on how to enter!
Christmasfest is the winter edition of the hugely successful Off the Street Food Fest which was one of the highlights of the summer for local foodies.
Organisers Chef Chris Molloy of the Lemon Tree, Derek Walker of the Letterkenny Artisan Market and Letterkenny Bank of Ireland manager Jimmy Stafford have been working as hard as Santa’s elves to bring the idea to life. Now we’re just weeks away from the big event that is sure to bring a warm festive spirit to the town.
The Off the Street Christmas programme is packed with entertaining and inspirational demos from the best local chefs, storytellers and musicians. Nine celebrity chefs are in the line-up, so you can take a seat in the demo tent and pick up top Christmas cooking tips and delicious drinks ideas from local brewers and gin and whiskey distillers.
We like the idea of strolling around with a hot mulled wine, enjoying carols and soaking up the atmosphere. You’ll be sure to meet friendly faces as the town comes together with plenty of good cheer.
Visitors are advised to come hungry – there will be delicious street food all around. Local craftspeople will be selling unique gift ideas and Donegal producers will have wonderful packages to take home.
Weekend tickets are just €5 and kids go free. You can secure your tickets now to skip the queues. Contact Off the Street LK on Facebook here to book your tickets: www.facebook.com/lkfoodfest
