The Donegal Town Annual Christmas Food Event ‘A Little Taste of Christmas’ will be held this Sunday, 25th November 2012, from 11am to 6.30pm in the Abbey Hotel , Donegal Town.

This festive fun day marks the launch of the Christmas period in Donegal Town, in conjuction with the official switching on of Christmas Lights, on the Diamond in the centre of town, at 7.30pm.

Over 60 stands are taking part in an indoor Festive Market which will be offering the very best of quality local goods in food, craft, wooden traditional toys and decorations, along with a host of Christmas gift ideas, entertainment and much more throughout the day.

Organised by the Taste of Donegal Food Festival committee, under the direction of the local Community Chamber, this promises to be another exciting day full of the tastes and spirit of Christmas. The committee have built up a solid reputation, over the last few years, for putting on professional and entertaining shows aimed at encouraging shoppers to buy local whenever they can.
