Naas Fashion and Gourmet week is due to take place from the 3rd to 12th of May. A full schedule of events is expected to take place during this period. The objective of the detailed programme is to attract visitors and promote opportunities for all of the local businesses and generate funding for local needs. The organising committee is pleased to announce that local company Dawn Farm Foods has come on board as the main sponsors of Naas fashion and gourmet week.

Dawn Farms is the leading supplier of cooked and fermented meats to the European food sector and a major employer in the Naas area.

Managing Director Larry Murrin said “We are delighted to sponsor this Festival and congratulate the Committee on their initiative. Dawn Farms is proud of its origins in Naas and this sponsorship is our way of making a positive contribution to the community where our 450 staff live and work and giving the local economy a boost.”

Committee member Paddy Kavanagh stated, “This is a tremendous shot in the arm for the Festival and it is very encouraging when a company of the stature of Dawn Farms decides to support this project.” Another committee member Tommy O’Driscoll said that it has given the event serious momentum and the entire committee are pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm for the festival shown by people from all walks of life.
