The Wexford Food and Wine Festival is celebrating its 8th birthday from May 27 to 29 when the streets of Wexford will be packed with all the best town, county and region have to offer. More than 10,000 people flocked to Wexford during the 2015 festival and organisers are hoping to emulate that success this year. The Wexford Food and Wine Festival is organised by a voluntary committee of local people on a non-profit making basis. Many of the events are free of charge, while some have a small cover charge to cover costs. Any profits generated are donated to charities and worthy local causes. Organisers are saying the council has 'committed to keeping the streets clean and the bins empty' during the weekend and there will be better 'linkages' between Selskar and South Main Street with a busker and food trail in operation.
