Over 50 local makers of artisan food, drinks, art, jewellery and more will descend on Galway City this month for the annual Food, Craft and Gift Fair.

The two day Food, Craft and Gift Fair is an incredible opportunity to browse a wide range of jams, jellies, chutneys, cakes, cheeses, vegan foods, juices, and microbrews for people looking to sample some artisan wares over the weekend.

Craft makers will also display their beautiful creations including handmade ceramics, leather goods, wooden products, household items, gifts, jewellery and much more.

The two day fair organised by the Local Enterprise Office will take place over November 30 – December 1 at the Black Box Theatre.

Admission is free to this charming event that takes a proud place among the packed calendar of festivals, fairs, and events in Galway City.

There will be lots of activities to make this the perfect event for all the family. There will be refreshments on-site and entertainment for the kids.

The idea for the Food, Craft  and Gift fair began in 2011 when the Galway LEO created a network to engage with local food producers, craft makers and designers.

There was no existing large scale event where they could showcase their work, engage with customers, and build their brand awareness here in Galway.

This is a great opportunity for people who cannot afford to open their own store to sell their wares and get feedback from customers.

Opening hours for this craft fair are Saturday 10am – 6pm and Sunday 11am – 5pm at the Black Box Theatre, Dyke Road, Galway.
