The Wexford Festival Opera held in October and November every year since 1951 is one of the world’s most renowned opera festivals. A trio of operas by lesser-known composers is performed in the sublime setting of Wexford Opera House. The corresponding fringe festival brings to Wexford a vibrant mix of theatre, dance, craft, traditional music, and tours of local sites of cultural and historical importance. Many other events are held in the opera house during the year.
Spread across three locations in Wexford town, the Food and Wine Festival celebrates local produce and gives Wexford’s artisan producers a chance to show off their delicious wares. Cookery demonstrations by celebrity chefs, hog roasts, an open-air food market and free workshops are all on offer. In 2013, the festival is scheduled to run from Friday, 24 May to Sunday, 26 May.
