food, heritage & nature festival
Welcome to the home of Clonmel Applefest – an annual festival that celebrates the food, heritage and nature of Clonmel and its environs.
Since our inception in 2017, we have collaborated with numerous local artists, crafters, food producers, performers and the community to celebrate the rich history of Clonmel town and to promote it as a valued destination for tourists and locals alike.
We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped us to celebrate Clonmel Applefest 2021. We enjoyed a wonderful array of events from the Our Sense of Place book launch to spoken word, a street feast with live music to our community picnic. Bat walks, tree talks and the beautiful Annie Hogg exhibition. Our Indigenous Harvest Procession and of course the ever popular Apple & Heritage Fair.
We look forward to seeing you all again next year.
