St James' Fest 2018

Athboy’s St James’ Fest is a free family fun day held to  celebrate the community of our town it’s diverse and active clubs, social groups, societies and sports teams.

Held every July in Athboy’s historic Fair Green, James’ Fest features free children’s entertainment, sideshows from local groups and musical performances from talented local acts. Kids can try their hand at archery, take in a dance class, run a relay race or just grab some candy floss and get their face painted like their favorite superhero!

There’s even a chance to bring your best-four legged pal along to take part in a unique Dog Show.
