Newbridge House and Farm, Saturday 2nd July - Sunday 3rd July
Flavours of Fingal, Ireland’s largest and most action-packed family friendly county show, has announced its line-up, and it’s bigger and better than ever! This year’s event is taking place on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July, at the beautiful Newbridge House and Farm, Donabate, North Dublin and it promises something for everyone.
Flavours of Fingal attracts an average of 80,000 visitors each year and is the flagship summer event hosted by Fingal County Council, in conjunction with the Fingal Farmers Group and the Fingal Harriers. Renowned as an action-packed family day out, Flavours of Fingal includes FREE children’s entertainment and activities, music, food and shopping.
The Farmer’s Field, hosted by the Fingal Farmers Group, will showcase the best of farm animals including cattle classes, sheepdog displays, alpacas, sheep and pigs. Traditional farming methods and techniques will be demonstrated alongside some of the most modern, state-of-the-art farm machinery. Don’t miss the noisy but charming hens, geese, and ducks or the Horticulture tent which will be full of delicious locally grown fruit and vegetables. And of course, no county show would be complete without home baking and a good cup of tea.
The Keeling’s Family Fun Zone will feature six paddocks of children’s activities including theatre and circus skills, arts and crafts, juggling, and traditional games. There is action and entertainment for children of all ages. But there’s also a quiet zone for children and families who need a little space during a busy day out. The Walled Garden and Front of House will feature music and entertainment, food, shopping and chill-out spaces.
Horse riding and show jumping are sure to be a popular attraction this year. Visit the Joe Duffy BMW Equestrian Zone, hosted by the Fingal Harriers to watch competitors in the qualifiers for the RDS Dublin Horse Show including racehorse to riding horse, ladies side saddle and intermediate side saddle. The competition will be judged by renowned showjumpers Shane McKenna, Conor Higgins, and Alice Copithorne. Whether you’re a complete novice or a life-long horse-lover, you won’t want to miss the action in the Equestrian Zone.
