About the Festival

Welcome to the
Vitamin Sea Festival

The Vitamin Sea Festival 2022 is a weekend filled with exciting sea-side events based in Waterford's famous coastal town of Tramore.

Taking place on the 16th-18th of September 2022 the Vitamin Sea Festival includes exciting collaborations with the local food & beverage industry, guest hosts, outdoor activities such as sea-side excursions, local craft markets 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.

The Vitamin Sea Festival is a weekend programme of sea inspired events featuring foodie collaborations, coastal excursions such as swim & savour events and taste trails including a local produce market. Our seaside town has a lot to offer the foodie tourist with a thirst for the outdoors.

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.

Food can be enjoyed at food venues, taken away to enjoy on the beach or a secluded cove, or from the comfort of your own home.
Wellness by the Sea
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.
About Taste Tramore
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 16-18th September 2022.
