Chairman Eoin McDonnell and the committee of Westport Food Festival regret that for a combination of reasons the festival will not be going ahead in 2019.
They thank everyone who has been involved in the festival since it began. It has been a real celebration of food in Westport drawing together producers, eateries of all descriptions, and people who are just interested in food and its provenance.
Mr McDonnell said: "Westport Food Festival has been a mainstay of the summer calendar for the last eight years. It has played an important part in highlighting Westport as a centre of good food and provided opportunities for local producers to develop their business. Thanks to everyone who has so generously helped out to make it possible."
