Come along to the 39th Annual Moynalty Steam Threshing Festival and see events like reaping and binding; threshing by steam; and horse, tractor & flail. There is a museum on site and much more, all in Ireland's Tidiest Town. The Threshing Arena is the highlight of the day for many. Here visitors can re-live bygone days with steam threshing, straw and chaff and corn streaming into the sacks to be transported to the barns. Other popular events include 'Saving the Hay' and twisting the Sugan ropes as well as the animal section, which is enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

The vintage section offers a vast and varied selection of lovely machines and items and visitors can enjoy a trip around the various stall holders. There is certainly something to entertain everyone with churning and butter making, spinning and weaving, a dog show, basket weaving, woodturning, thatching, mud-turf making and more. Enjoy traditional Irish music and dance and see the lumberjack show - full of fearless skills and displays.
