The organisers of the Kinsale Gourmet Weekend have regretfully confirmed the cancellation of this year’s event, which was due to take place on the weekend of 9th – 11th October 2020.
In a statement, the organisers said: “We as a group are devastated to share this news with you but we are committed to do our part to help protect our staff, attendees and fellow Kinsale people. We still are exploring options to reschedule this event in early 2021. We will continue to work hard to bring you the unique event that you love, though it is true that our 9th-11th of October 2020 event will no longer take place, we continue to strive towards our purpose helping create a magnificent weekend in Kinsale.
“We would like to do a special shout out to our main sponsors for their support throughout the last 44 years.
“Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID 19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are extremely disappointed that we are unable to hold this event, but we know it is the right decision based on the information we have today.”
