THE Féile na mBláth at The Park Festival in Tralee’s Town Park is set to be the biggest Festival to date this month.

This year’s Festival will take place to coincide with the annual Rose of Tralee International Festival and will run from Friday, August 19 through to Tuesday, August 23 in the Town Park.

The Festival is celebrating a number of significant birthdays with 15 Years of Féile na mBláth, 40 Years of the Tralee Flower and Garden Club who will present one of its largest Decorative Class Competitions to date and of course 100 Years since ‘the Green’ was purchased by Tralee Urban Council and became known as Tralee Town Park in 1922.

The festival will take place thanks to Kerry County Council – Tralee Municipal District, Kerry Group and support from the Rose of Tralee, the Festival.

It will see the return of the traditional elements such as the Flower Displays, Dog Shows, Street Theatre, Emergency Services, Recitals and Performances, Vintage Cars, Community Garden, the Food and Craft Village and of course complemented by the other weekend activities such as the Park Runs and Art in the Park.

The highlights at this year’s Festival will see the return of last year’s successful family camps which, while free to the public, are advised to be booked in advance. Family Town will run from 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm daily in the ‘Kerry Group’ Big-Top Circus Tent and will feature all Kerry Performers from Kids Party Club, Kingdom Party Pals, Mals Circus Workshops, Drum Dance, Fanzini Brother Street Theatre Show and the Family Town Show for 2022 ‘Madagascar – A musical adventure’ featuring a cast of 10 Kerry performers along with a ‘Movies and Musicals’ event to mark 100 Years of ‘The Green’.

Other elements where advanced registration is encouraged include the School of Irish Archaeology’s ‘TheBig Dig’ running Friday, Saturday and Sunday with ‘Planet Science Kidz’ running Monday and Tuesday of the Festival.

New Mayor of Tralee, Cllr Mikey Sheehy said the festival had become a key event in the calendar in Tralee.

“This has grown into a wonderful community event which attracts many thousands of people to Tralee annually. Féile na mBláth was the first outdoor Festival in Kerry last Summer and ran very safe and successfully in August. For this year we were happy to keep the Festival in August for a further year to team up with the Rose of Tralee as they return for their first Festival since Covid”.
