The tenth edition of the Bloom festival is set to return to Dublin’s Phoenix Park for the June Bank Holiday Weekend, running from 2 to 6 June.
This year’s show is set to include 23 show gardens, many exploring different social and culture themes, as well as over 100 food stalls at the Food Village at Bloom, which will offer a wide range of artisan produce on sale and onsite dining options.
This year also sees the return of the GIY Zone, which will host daily workshops, discussions and debates on topics ranging from how to make workplaces healthier, and the future of organic farming, to school dinners and the real costs of cheap food.
Furthermore, visitors will get the chance to learn more about the Irish food and drink industry and how it is fast becoming a world leader in sustainable food production, by visiting Bord Bia’s new Origin Green Experience, located in the Food Village.
Speaking at the launch Gary Graham, Bord Bia’s Bloom Manager said, "Bord Bia is delighted to mark Bloom’s tenth anniversary this year and we are proud of how the event has evolved over the years.
"We are working hard to ensure that visitors are in for a real treat in this, our special celebratory year. Once again, the Bloom audience can expect to see breath taking show gardens, sample some of Ireland’s finest food and enjoy wonderful entertainment, shopping and plenty of lively debate."
