Entertainment on the Court House Stage commences at 1pm with local traditional group Síle, followed by performances from All Ireland Fleadh Champions from Fintona CCÉ,  The Coves and a Special Guest performance from a young lady making a big impression as a Taylor Swift tribute act, Taylor Made!  There is something for everyone.

Omagh Town Centre will also come to life with Jigsaw Farm, Exploris Aquarium Touch Tank, Characters and Family Heritage Trail with a fun packed day of entertainment also taking place in Strule Arts Centre from 1pm – 4pm.
