Oakfield Park, Raphoe, Donegal,
Oakfest, Oakfield Park’s family music festival, takes place on the June Bank Holiday weekend.
World-renowned Alabama 3 Acoustic will headline Sunday 2 June and chart-topping The Academic will headline on Saturday 1 June.
As well as a top-class musical billing, there’ll also be fun for all the family with children’s disco dome, face-painting, arts and crafts, puppetry and story-telling. The grounds at Oakfield Park include a host of sites for families, couples and friends to explore, including walled gardens, ponds, lakes, a lakeside Nymphaeum, a hedge maze, heritage trees and sculptures. Children can make a wish at Oakfield Park’s Faerie tree, while navigating their way through extensive walks and trails.
Oakfield Park’s crowning glory is a 4.5km narrow gauge railway with a diesel and steam train operating passenger trips daily. This is a magical way to explore the park’s gardens as the train passes through flower meadows, beautiful woodlands, willow tunnels, oak circles, boardwalks, heritage trees, a wooden causeway and sparkling streams and lakes and will be running all weekend.
A music event like no other, with a top class billing, trains encircling the stages, artisan food producers and prosecco, beer and wine bars, alcohol free zone, and views to die for in one of the top gardens in the country.
