The biggest event of the year at Tannaghmore Gardens and Animal Farm is just around the corner, so make sure you don’t miss out on the 21st annual Bird Fair on Saturday, August 29.

Thousands flock to this fun-filled event every year to see the fantastic variety of thrilling birds and gorgeous animals on show – from Polish hens and fawn Indian Runner ducks to fluffy Sebastopol geese and Muscovy ducks you’ll be wowed by the selection of birds on display.

Taking place from 10am to 4pm, other exciting activities on the day will include the ever-popular Sheep Dog Display where you can watch these super smart dogs rounding up sheep, performing tricks and completing an obstacle course.

The wood carving, stick carving and archery display are always fun to watch as well as the blacksmithing. Stroll around the arts and crafts stall whilst being entertained by The Armagh Rhymers. Meet Mike and his owls from World of Owls. Take a step back in time and view the cars on display from Downe Vintage Car Club.

In addition, all animal lovers out there can check out the piglets, goats, lambs, cows, donkeys, ponies and rare breeds at the renowned Animal Farm, enjoy a puzzling afternoon getting lost in the maze and, of course, get active in the play park.

The Bird Fair is a great day out for all the family with a wide range of interesting birds and rare breed animals on the farm.

With so much to do and see it is an unmissable event and costs just £5 per car. So come along, join in the fun and give the kids a last summer day out before the homework kicks in again.
