The Randox Northern Ireland Potato Festival is an annual event held each year.

The festival, which is now its seventh year, brings together members of the public and the farming community in a celebration of all aspects of the local potato industry.

The festival was initiated to celebrate the memory of John Clarke, Ireland's most famous potato breeder. It is a family focused event showcasing the very best Northern Ireland produce, not only through potatoes but a full array of artisan producers. There are kid’s activities and food demonstrations a perfect day out for the whole family!

The festival takes place on Saturday 5th October 2019 on the grounds of the Causeway Hotel in close proximity to the world heritage site, The Giant's Causeway.

The Northern Ireland Potato Festival is held in a region known and respected for the strength of the local agri-food industry, world-class food and beautiful scenery, the festival is free to members of the public. Once again, our aim is to promote the important economic sector to tourists and local visitors alike. The festival has gained a reputation for its quality and organisation. This year the event coincides with a National Trust free open day at The Giant's Causeway, complementing the festival perfectly.
