Celebrating food, heritage
& nature through the
Prism of the Arts

Welcome to the home of Clonmel Applefest, an annual festival that celebrates the food, heritage and natural environment of Clonmel through the prism of the Arts. 

Since its inception in 2018, we have collaborated with many local and national artists, crafters, food producers, performers and communities to celebrate the rich cultural and industrial history of Clonmel and promote it as a valued place to live and visit for locals and visitors.

We had swonderful projects in store for 2022 and many interesting and special acts and performances.  Starting with the launch of our Artisans of Clonmel book followed by a Street Feast, we spent Culture Night with an array of events for all ages, followed by our very popular Harvest & Heritage Fair in the new location of Suir Island. The Harvest Procession piloted last year also returned with special support from Rogù Arts and a large selection of community performers. We finished off our fab week-end with three intimate events: a compost demo, a Spoken Word reading and a finale gig by the beloved Cedartowns.  We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We are back next year from the 21st to the 24th September for more exciting acts and projects!
