The Vitamin Sea Festival 2021 is a weekend filled with exciting sea-side food &
outdoor events based in Waterford's famous coastal town of Tramore.
Taking place on the 17th-19th of September 2021 the Vitamin Sea Festival aims to showcase the best
places to eat, drink, explore and enjoy! This festival is a town wide celebration of all things food
& outdoors. You can experience exciting collaborations with local food & wellness businesses, swim &
savour events, taste trails, tantalising seafood, outdoor activities such as sea-side excursions,
saunas with a sea view, beach dance classes, yoga & meditation, a local produce market and much more
to celebrate the vibrant coastal community within Tramore!
"The festival event draws on what makes Tramore special; it’s unique coastline, its food expertise
and its heritage."
September will help local businesses extend the season and allow all to benefit from the therapeutic
properties of iodine-rich sea. The festival couldn’t be better timed for those looking for
staycation events and places to recharge and reconnect.
Events will kick start on Friday evening and run all day throughout Saturday and Sunday. There is a
series of adults and kids events, both ticketed and non-ticketed but pre-booking is essential as
places are limited.
The festival will celebrate Tramore’s heritage as a seaside destination. Sea bathing was regarded as
beneficial to wellbeing and recommended as a cure for various ailments, particularly the medicinal
qualities of seaweed as a rich source of iodine. Visitors came to Tramore in September to swim in
the iodine rich waters and visit the seaweed baths by the Lady's slip. Today, Tramore continues the
tradition of sea swimming with locals taking a dip throughout the year and tourists taking advantage
of Tramore’s blue flag beaches during the summer.
Taste Tramore is a network of
local food and drink businesses working with the aim to promote Tramore as a year-round food & drink
destination. Taste Tramore is supporting and running their own unique food and outdoor festival this
September and are delighted to get the ball rolling this year with the Vitamin Sea Festival on
17-19th September 2021.
"Our seaside town has a lot to offer the foodie tourist with a thirst for the outdoors."
