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.
This year, we bring you an interesting array of events based around our 2021 theme Indigenous as we celebrate our sense of place and identity through folklore, traditions and story-telling.
What’s on for Applefest 2021!
After a challenging 2020 it is great to be celebrating live events again with a programme that we feel has a little something for everyone to enjoy, making the most of Clonmel’s abundance of foods, arts, crafts, and heritage.
The safety of our audiences is always our highest priority and while most of our events this year are outdoors, we do ask that everyone please maintain social distancing rules and wear face coverings where appropriate.
