The May Fair traditionally takes place on a Tuesday in late May but today it is at the heart of a week of events which make up the May Fair Festival. Horses are still exercised and sold in Main Street and there is a variety of modern amusements in the Square.

There's something for everyone at the modern May Fair, including the Mayor's Parade, sports events, concerts, exhibitions, markets and amusements. Children take part in the Mayor's Fancy Dress Parade, arts & crafts, dance workshops and music concerts.

A May Fair Queen is chosen to represent the town over the next year. People come from far and wide to meet old friends and make new ones.

We hope you enjoy the 2013 Ballyclare May Fair.
