About the Event
Sat 26 to Mon 28
at the Ulster American Folk Park, Omagh
The period 1912 to 1922 was one of the most eventful in Ireland’s history. From the campaigns for Home Rule, Women’s Rights, through the Great War, the Easter Rising to the foundation of the Free State. As part of our public programme to mark the Decade of Centenaries we take you back to April 1916 to explore some of the significant events of that time. Stroll down the street and witness the sights, smells and sounds of a busy market day in Ulster. Stallholders, shopkeepers, travelling journeymen and entertainers alike will keep you amused throughout the day. Try your hand at the traditional crafts of spinning, basket weaving or rope making. Our younger visitors can help feed the young chicks and ducks. Enjoy storytelling sessions for all the family within the unique setting of the museum’s exhibit buildings and ‘Take your partner’ for a spring-time hoe-down in the Pennsylvania Barn where you can listen to the best of Old-Time music from Appalachia and meet frontier trappers and traders of the mid-18th century. Major event day pricing applicable.
