Countdown to Louth food festival in July

ORGANISERS are gearing up for the St James Food Festival in Louth on Sunday July 17.

The event is being hosted by the Louth Food & Drink Group, part of the Louth Town Partnership.

Most of the 50 stalls will focus on food of all kinds, including a wide array of local produce.

The festival will also include arts and crafts.

Markets representative and events organiser, Mick Foreman, said traders were coming from all over the county.

There will be entertainment and live cookery demonstrations. St James Food Festival is one of two events organised by the Food & Drink Group this year as part of its continuing campaign to promote Louth as a good food town.

A Victorian Family Fayre will be held on October 23.
