Tralee Park Festival: Free Entry & Living Medieval History Event

June 29 @ 10:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Tralee’s annual Féile na mBláth Park Festival returns from Friday 28 to Sunday 30 June to Tralee Town Park & Kerry County Museum. Thanks to Kerry County Council – Tralee Municipal District, entry to the festival and its events will once again be 100% free. This year’s festival sees the return of the brilliant Waterford-based Viking re-enactment group Déise Medieval with over thirty warriors and reenactors moving into their tented camp in the Town Park. All participants will dress, live and work in an authentic recreation of Viking life. Cooking is done over the open fire and demonstrations, including mock battles, will take place throughout the weekend. You can also visit Kerry County Museum free of charge on Saturday and Sunday and enjoy a self-guided tour of all exhibitions, as well as family-friendly, hands-on history experiences in the ‘Medieval Experience’, a recreation of Tralee in the year 1450 complete with the sounds and smells. Living History group ‘The Last Prince’ are back by popular demand and if you ever wanted to know what life was like in Gaelic Medieval Ireland then this event is for you. Entrance to the Museum will be via the front as usual but also via the Tourist Information Office. If you have a buggy or wheelchair or would only like to see the medieval re-enactment in the museum, then we recommend using the Tourist Information Entrance for ease of access. Further information on all other events events can be seen on www.festivaltralee.com or the Festivals Facebook Page @parkfestivaltralee
