On Sunday the 5th of August, we will host our 11th Annual Vintage Festival. Once again the festival will take place in the scenic setting of Roberts Cove. We continue to expand our festival each year with new attractions.
One of the main events is the tractor pulling competition. The Irish Tractor Pulling Association will hold Round of the all Ireland Tractor Pulling Competition at this year festival. Competitors from north and south will attend.
The day will begin with the usual vintage car & tractor around the local area before returning to the festival field.
