4th Annual Fraughan Sunday 28th July

The Slow Food Sugarloaf Convivium, invite all Slow Food Members to join with them on their 4th annual celebration of ‘Fraughan Sunday’. The ancient Irish tradition of Bilberry picking combined with a social gathering to mark the first wild berries of the season to ripen.

Fraughan Sunday takes place this July 28th at 11.30 am and as always the location in Wicklow is secret and will only be disclosed to registered participants on the Friday before (July 26th) to ensure a bumper Harvest!

This is a Field Trip and a “bring your own picnic” Event. For afters, bring something to celebrate The Fraughan with…maybe cream, custard, ice cream, you decide!

As with all Field Trips, please also bring practical outdoor clothing and footwear, as well as a fully charged mobile phone.

There is no charge to for the event and as ever children are welcome. Their small fingers and good vision makes them better pickers!

To register, simply email Biddy at , Evan at or Ed at  stating the numbers of adults and children in your group, as well as your mobile number. This Event is limited and is on a first come basis.ImageImage
