Our fantastic dog show will take place again this year, and we can’t wait to see all your gorgeous doggies strutting their stuff. Put them on a diet, sent them to the groomers, talk nicely to them, but by all accounts have them ready for the ring!
Fun At The River

Our beautiful riverbank is our best asset, and as always, there will be lots of fun activities for all the family enjoy beside and on the water.
Our local adventure specialists Shannon River Adventure are on board (pun intended) once again to provide activities for the whole weekend. There will be Kayaking Trips on the water, as well as the Climbing Wall to test your strength!
The Heritage Boat Association are also returning to our shores with an amazing display of 10 heritage boats for you to explore and learn about their fascinating history on the Irish waterways.
Early Evening Entertainment
4pm-8pm, Rooskey Post Office
As the evening sets in, we will have street-side entertainment in the heart of the village.
You can try to dunk your friends in our Unlucky Dip, and we will have local bands and performers keeping the festival atmosphere going on our Bandstand!
(If you’d like to showcase your talents on the bandstand stage, please email firstname.lastname@example.org)
Also making a return this year is the infamous Tug of War! Get your mates together and stretch out those muscles for a true test of your strength, kicking off at 5pm.
Evening Event: Late Nite Radio!
8pm, The Marquee, Rooskey Community Centre
Headlining our Sunday night, festival veterans and firm favourites in the village, Late Nite Radio always put on a fantastic show and will have you dancing your socks off to their lively entertaining tunes.
The boys will be supported by everybody’s favourite ukulele supergroup, Manic Ukes! This huge group is made up of members from ukulele groups all around the country, including Ukephoric from Knockcroghery, Lir from Mullingar, and the MUGS and BUGS from Dublin. Their happy strumming is the perfect way to kick off a night of music and craic.
