Ballymoney Spring Fair returns on Saturday 14th April – offering a fantastic day of festival fun.

Live music from local artists, a vintage car cavalcade and a colourful carnival parade will be among the highlights of the event, with lots to see and do at Castlecroft Square, Megaw Park and Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre.

The day will begin with a ‘quiet morning’ from 10am – 11.30am for children with additional needs at Megaw Park featuring craft workshops, an animal farm and inflatables before the main event begins at 12noon.

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councillor Joan Baird OBE: “Ballymoney Spring Fair promises a great day of free family entertainment, filled with music and colour, and it provides the perfect reason to explore everything the town has to offer. Last year’s inaugural event attracted thousands of people and we are looking forward to building on this success and creating a day to remember for everyone.”

For the best of local produce, visit Naturally North Coast & Glens Artisan Market at Castlecroft Square with its exceptional variety of local food, drink and high quality hand-crafted goods. This will be complemented by Ballymoney’s unique retail offering, which features an array of independent and family-run businesses.

Vintage and classic cars from Ballymoney Old Vehicle Club will be on display at Joey Dunlop Leisure Centre throughout the day before setting off on their tour through the town. The must-see cavalcade will be preceded by the showcase carnival parade where over 100 young people will bring the streets to life.
