Cork on a Fork Fest is thrilled to announce that tickets for the highly anticipated VQ Shared Table dinner on opening night are now live and available for purchase.

Tickets are priced at €150 per person, and attendees will indulge in a specially curated sharing dinner, featuring the finest local ingredients, accompanied by drinks, live music, and a festive atmosphere,

Katherine Fitzpatrick, Director of Destination at The VQ said, “We’re really excited to host the opening night event at this year’s Cork on a Fork Festival, along with lots of other events, as we have the ambition to be a central part of the festival.  The VQ Shared Table is going to be a highlight that shows off the incredible flavours of MacCurtain Street and the wider VQ area.  We are very grateful to our sponsor Birra Moretti and our partners TS Events, Clonakilty Blackpudding, and Rebel City Distillery.”

Jonathan Barry, Regional Sales Manager at Heineken Ireland said, “The VQ Shared Table perfectly aligns with Birra Moretti’s warm, sociable ethos. It’s the perfect beer to enjoy with food and friends and the event follows our Shared Table series on Virgin Media. What many people might not know is that Birra Moretti is brewed in Cork with grain sourced from Munster farmers, so the partnership is a great fit with the festival’s commitment to being local and sustainable.  Heineken has always been a proud supporter of local festivals and events, and we are delighted to be involved in this year’s Cork on  Fork Festival.”

Cork on a Fork celebrates Cork’s rich food heritage, combining local traditions with global flavours. It’s a chance to sample incredible food from the region’s talented chefs, farmers, and producers. It is organised and supported by Cork City Council in partnership with local hospitality businesses, Fáilte Ireland, Pure Cork, Cork Business Association, Cork Airport and sponsors.
