The Waterford Winterval festival is the largest celebration of the festive season in Ireland offering families a trail of over 25 different events and activities with 17 of those events on offer free of charge.
Free events at Winterval include a spectacular 3D sound and light show designed especially for Winterval, which will light up the Old Deanery in Cathedral Square each evening during the festival. The Waterford Vikings Fado set up camp at Greyfriars Church where they will demonstrate the traditions of a Viking Christmas. A ‘Traditional Polish Christmas’ will be hosted by Waterford’s Polish community and offers festival goers a gingerbread man making class for children and lots more at ‘Swiety Mikolaj’. Frankly, it sounds delicious.
The ‘Winterval Market’ also takes over the heart of the medieval city where 60 beautifully decorated traditional log cabins host the very best quality and range of goods from Ireland’s food and craft producers.
