What is TheFork Festival?

TheFork Festival is our largest dining campaign of the year and provides the perfect opportunity for restaurants to take their marketing efforts to the next level and kickstart the year with a surge in reservations. Throughout the campaign, which runs from the 15th of February to the 31st of March, people dine out at participating restaurants across the country – and throughout the rest of Europe.

This isn't the first time TheFork Festival has taken place, and based on previous campaigns, we can confidently say it's a success for participating restaurants. Drawing from market trends and past Festivals, we anticipate that restaurants will receive an average of 5.3 times more reservations compared to the period before the Festival. Thanks to the insights gained from previous Festivals, we've continuously refined our marketing strategies, ensuring participants can expect to maximise their number of reservations.
