The Queen of the Sea Festival tonight won the East Cork Business and Tourism Awards Best East Cork Festival award Sponsored by the East Cork Journal on Saturday, November 23rd.
There was a fantastic response to the Cork County Council run awards, with almost 325 entries received from 240 different businesses and organisations throughout the county.
We are so excited to have won The East Cork Business and Tourism Awards! After 10 years of bringing our favourite weekend to you all, we are so happy with this win!
The panel of six judges in each region had a tough task due to the high standard of entries and have now shortlisted three finalists per category, per region. We want to send a massive congratulations to our other finalists Youghaloween Spooktacular, and Cork Harbour Festival who they themselves put on an amazing show. We know that they will be stronger next year!
The winner of the East Cork Business of the Year will then go up against equivalent winners from West Cork and North Cork for the coveted title of overall Cork County Business of the Year. This will take place at a glamorous luncheon in Cork City in January.
If we want to be back next year, we need your help for the 2020 festival. Each year the festival is funded by the sponsors, and this involved a lot of hard work from our committee, you can help us donate to the 2020 festival if you so choose to.
