Easter EGGStravaganza at Sligo Folk Park
April 18 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm€10
Big plans for 2020
Sligo Folk Park are calling on all junior EGGSplorers to join in the annual EGGStravagaza Easter Egg hunt which this year is partnering with Cadburys Chocolate in fundraising for Barnardos children’s charity. Cadburys have donated a whopping 250 Easter Eggs and activity packs so there’s one for every EGGSplorer. Mollie and Lizzie Rabbit will be leading the way on Tuesday 16th, Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th April from 12noon-3pm. Don’t miss your place – booking is essential.
It’s way more than an Egg Hunt– the Easter Bunny is making a guest appearance and the Easter Fairies are just waiting for a visit from all the children. There will be face painting and Easter biscuit decorating as well as arts and crafts workshops. The mini train will be welcoming passengers and there will be refreshments for all.
The cost is €10 per child and children must be accompanied by an adult. Places are limited for this fun festival and can be booked online through the Facebook page or by phoning 071-9165001.
Big plans for 2020
Next year, 2020, marks a significant milestone for Sligo Folk Park which will celebrate 30 years in operation. As a fitting marker for this landmark event, the Folk Park is undergoing significant redevelopment to bring it into line with best practice in tourism attractions around the country.
“This is a major re-development which will totally re-energise Sligo Folk Park as a must-see visitor experience”, said Michael Tuohy, Chairman of Sligo Folk Park, “We were delighted to secure the input of external consultants to work on a comprehensive development plan dealing with infrastructure, branding and presentation. When complete the Park is destined to become a jewel in the crown of tourism in the north west.”
During the redevelopment, Sligo Folk Park will remain open and will host festivals and events as normal. Visitors are asked to excuse any signs of construction or change which are unavoidable as the changes take place.
The exact detail of the redevelopment will be announced over the coming months.
