There is a buzz in the air as Ireland’s favourite gardening and food festival, Bord Bia Bloom is set to return to its home in the Phoenix Park, Dublin from June 2nd-6th 2022. The celebrated outdoor festival, now in its sixteenth year, will be held in-person following two successful virtual #BloomAtHome events.

With a surge in consumer interest in gardening and the outdoors accelerated by world events over the last two years, this year’s festival will celebrate the role outdoor spaces can play in promoting positive mental and physical health. In addition, the importance of living more sustainably and protecting biodiversity will feature throughout the festival.
From flowers to food and family fun, there is something for everyone at this year’s festival. Bord Bia Bloom spans 70-acres encompassing the Visitor Centre in the Phoenix Park and while predominantly an outdoor event in 2019, organisers are bringing even more of the features into the open air this year.

Launching the festival are Bord Bia CEO Tara McCarthy and Director of Horticulture Mike Neary.

Tara McCarthy, Bord Bia CEO said: “Bord Bia is delighted to return to the Phoenix Park for our annual showcase of the best of Irish gardening, horticulture, food and drink. It’s great to once again bring together the many talented people who are a part of Bord Bia Bloom, from garden designers and growers to food producers, conservationists, chefs, musicians and artists”.

This year 19 stunning show gardens will form the centrepiece of Bord Bia Bloom. The show gardens are one of the event’s most popular attractions and the Quality Kitchen stage will feature some of Ireland’s leading chefs including Neven Maguire, Rory O’Connell, Fiona Uyema, Catherine Fulvio, Edward Hayden, Gary O’Hanlon, Shane Smith, Mark Moriarty, JP McMahon and Brian McDermott.
