The Mayor, Councillor John Scott, launches this year’s May Fair at the Dennison Commercials Ballyclare Depot with Stephen Hill (Depot Manager), Alderman Mandy Girvan (Vice Chair of Ballyclare May Fair Working Group) and Councillor David Arthurs (Chair of Ballyclare May Fair Working Group).


Ballyclare May Fair will be out of this world from Tuesday 23 until Saturday 27 May.  This year’s fair will kick off with the ever popular traditional horse fair in Six Mile Water Park.  Local musicians as well as your Uncle Hugo and Q Radio’s Stephen Clements will get your toes tappin on May Fair Tuesday with plenty of music and entertainment in the Square.

Thursday 25 May continues the Unbelievable Universe theme with Mini Explorers workshops for children aged 5 and under from 10am.  These workshops are a feast for all the senses as children will be able to hear, see and touch our unbelievable universe.

Saturday 27 May sees the return of the fantastic May Fair Parade, departing from Dennison Commercials at 1pm, when the town will come alive with entertainment and colour.  A local craft and food market will tempt your taste buds and from 8pm, Ritchie Remo and his band will delight fans of all ages with his charisma and musical talent.

Other highlights throughout the week will include family fun days, amusements, pet show, movie showing, tea dance and a fantastic fireworks display at 10pm on Saturday 27 May in Ballyclare Town Centre.
