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!
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.
