A Royal Recipe For Fun, Colour And Excitement At Féile Na mBláth

Posted by


The huge crowds at Féile na mBláth in the Town Park last year.

FORGET Chelsea Flower Show, because the visit of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall coincides with the magnificent Féile na mBláth at The Park Festival from this Friday June 15 to Sunday, June 17 in Tralee Town Park.

Organisers promise the crowds will be treated like kings, queens, princes and princesses by the team who have put together a great programme of weekend entertainment.

This year’s renewal of the popular mid-summer festival in Kerry’s capital town promises to be better than last year’s event and all that’s needed is some fine weather to keep the spirits up.

The Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Norma Foley, said: “Féile na mBláth has long been a popular event on the festivals calendar in Tralee. Féile na mBláth has all the ingredients for a magnificent mid-summer Park Festival in Tralee featuring something for everyone in the open air and under the marquees. The Town Park in Tralee is a beautiful attraction for people of all ages, especially when it’s the venue for a weekend of top quality family entertainment.”

Festival-goers will be spoiled for choice with over 30 gourmet food and craft stalls, Art in the Park, Kidz Zone, fun with Guido Fanzini and a Circus Workshop.

Over the three days of the festival, there will be a Floral Display Competition Exhibition, Garden Display, Flower Demonstrations, a Gardening Talk and Nature Walk.

Culture, history and the environment always feature prominently at The Park Festival with fun presentations, demonstrations and activities for all the family including the Medieval Living History Experience, The Big Dig and story-telling.

The Dog Shows, Junior parkRun, Archery, Falconry displays, demonstrations from the Emergency Services and Drum Workshops are guaranteed to keep the crowds entertained all weekend.

The Céilí Dancing in the Kerry Group Marquee from 5pm to 8pm on Sunday 17th June will be a lively end to the festival. Music always plays a major role in festivals and this year the new SPOT – Street Performers of Tralee are looking forward to performing in Tralee Town Park.

Kerry County Council are proud to organise Féile na mBláth with the support of Tralee Chamber Alliance and it will be funded by the Kerry County Council Community Support Fund and Kerry Group.

Once again, the organisers wish to thank Bryan Carr and his team of volunteers for their time and energy in bringing The Park Festival at Féile na mBláth to fruition.
