Taking place over the bank holiday weekend of 25th& 26thMay 2019, the NI Countrysports Fair has something for everyone to enjoy. With its atmospheric and vibrant mix of attractions, displays and demonstrations, as well as its competitions, have-a-go activities, shopping and family fun, the show provides the ultimate value-for-money family day out. Over the two days you can try your hand at many activities such as air rifle shooting, archery, clay pigeon shooting (over 18 years old only), angling for the young, pony rides, dog agility, fly tying and catapulting to name but a few. There are competitions galore for enthusiasts within equestrian, clay pigeon shooting, gun dogs, lurcher & terriers, ferreting, wildfowling, catapulting and pet dog categories. At the heart of the show lie various arenas with demonstrations each day. If you prefer shopping, you will be spoiled for choice with the vast selection of artisan foods, crafts and country living, fashion and lifestyle stands. You will also be treated to some superb cookery demonstrations from a variety of very talented local chefs, who will be using ingredients sourced from producers at the show. Rural heritage and culture are also celebrated at the show with demonstrators such as blacksmith, wood turner, griddle cooking, bush craft and more. If after all the activity you want to rest your weary legs, then the lively family area has food, drink, music and a funfair area. With all this and much more on offer, there is plenty to keep everyone entertained over the weekend of the show.
