It is nearly time to experience the magic of our traditional rural festival once again!
The Enniskerry Victorian Field Day CHARITY event will take place this year on Sunday, September 14th at Knocklinn Farm on the Ballyman Road. It’s a beautiful setting overlooking the seaside town of Bray, with the backdrop of the Majestic Sugarloaf Mountains.
We are thrilled to announce that our charity partner for 2014 is Lakers, a Sport and Recreational Club for Children and Adults with an intellectual disability. The club provides a wide range of sporting, educational and essential support services to its 350 members across Leinster. Lakers celebrate their 25th Anniversary this year.
The Enniskerry Victorian Field Day is growing in size and popularity; attracting over 4,500 people each year and has become a popular permanent fixture on the North Wicklow/South Dublin calendar.
The weekend will be kicked off with a traditional Victorian Rag Man’s Ball on the night of Friday the 12th of September 2014.
Festival events include Steam engines at work, Vintage Car and Tractor Shows, Tug of War battles and Sheaf Pitching! Visitors can enjoy rambling through the craft stalls at the ‘Schoolhouse for Art’ Artisan Market and savor Wicklow’s rich culinary delights at our Food Fair.
Other great highlights include Archery, Falconry, Horseshoe Throwing, Arm Wrestling, Nail Driving, Traditional Children’s Games, Puppetry, Pony Rides, old-fashioned Carousels, live music and so much more. There are lots of fantastic prizes to be won!
