Amazing arts and craft at the Festival Craft Fair which returns for 2017. More info for crafty traders coming soon!

Our giant - and not so giant - characters went down a storm in our 2016 festival. Now they're back - with some new friends for 2017! Watch this space.

All costumes and characters are made by Dunshaughlin residents under the expert design and direction of Brian Walsh, Head of Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival Arts Team and coordinator of a portfolio preparation course at Ballyfermot College of Further Education and Ed Rourke from Bui Bolg. Bui Bolg has been working in street arts for 22 years and are specialists in Puppet and Costume making for stage, street, and TV. They have led puppet making workshops with professional and community groups all over the world from schools to colleges to masterclasses with industry professionals. Their most recent projects include "The Dig in Diner" on RTE Junior, Mr Tayto for Largo Foods and the City of Brest " LE MARCHÉ DE NOËL DE BREST” with Le Fourneau Creation Centre in France. This project is part funded by Meath County Council.
