Tubbercurry Old Fair Day Festival celebrated its 36th festival, running from Saturday 5th to the highlight of the festival, the Old Fair Day, on Wednesday 9th August. Huge crowds attended with over 20,000 people filling the town on the Old Fair Day. The five-day festival carried on the tradition of the fair day of years past. The fair day was a treasure trove of activities from our demonstrators in our heritage and craft village, showcasing traditions from bygone days of the fair, artisan stalls, vintage displays, animals and live music. Highlights included Highland Cattle, Black Swans, Butter Making and delicious Boxty. We loved seeing all the traditional skills such as thatching, weaving, butter making, trashing, pottery making, rush work making a return and even a wicker coffin was made! In addition, families enjoyed the funfair, a kid’s zone, and over a hundred trade stands dotted throughout the town. Thank you for visiting.
