Ballyclare May Fair returns for 2022!

After a three year absence, the fun filled Ballyclare May Fair returns this year from Saturday 21 until Saturday 28 May.

Street entertainment, Live music and a screening of the Academy Award winning ‘Belfast’ will kick the week off to a fantastic start on Saturday.

On Tuesday we will be having our very own Jubilee Street Party, sponsored by Hunter Campbell Estate Agents, on the Main Street, as well as Artisan Markets and amusements.

Don’t forget to bring your furry friends to Centenary Park for the pet show at 6pm. Then from 7pm, enjoy the music from across the Borough with local musicians in the Town Hall.

If you fancy your chances in this year’s Soap Box Derby, sponsored by WJ Blair, Ross’s Joint and Modern Tyres, then join us on Thursday 26 May at 6.30pm.  Ballyeaston Road will become a racing delight as competitors’ battle for the crown!

How about getting your friends, family or colleagues together in a team for ‘It’s a Knockout’ on Friday 27 May.  Sponsored by Reid Black Solicitors, this is always a great event as teams tackle the fun filled games and obstacle courses.

Saturday will prove a wonderful finale to the week with a day full of fantastic activities.  The Mayor’s parade, sponsored by Dennison Commercials, will fill the streets of Ballyclare with colour, music and fun! To end the day you’ll be on the dance floor enjoying the fabulous Garth Brooks and Dolly Parton tribute acts.
