Richhill Apple Harvest Fayre is a free to attend country fayre celebrating the world famous Armagh Bramley Apple.
It is in its sixth year and there will be live cookery demonstrations, food and drink stalls, arts and crafts, family fun and games, competitions, cider alley, a climbing wall, hide and seek live music and entertainment tug-o-war and much more.
Supported by Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and the Ulster Farmers’ Union, the popular harvest fayre, takes place during the ‘Taste The Island’ 12 week long collaboration with Tourism Northern Ireland, Fáilte Ireland and Tourism Ireland.
Organisers say the fayre will pay homage to those producers who use the Armagh Bramley Apple, those who produce food and drink products from our land and those who contribute to Northern Ireland’s overall food and drink story.
Thousands are expected to descend in the village of Richhill to celebrate the end of the harvest and to support Armagh’s thriving producers such as Ballylisk of Armagh, Symphonia Gin, Armagh Cider Company, Long Meadow Cider, McCrackens Real Ale, Wilsons Country, Apple Blossom Bakery and many more.
There are a host of other events which will run from Wednesday, October 23rd in the village.”
Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon, Councillor Mealla Campbell, who attended the launch of this year’s fayre, said: “This popular event really compliments the recent Armagh Food and Cider Festival by extending the celebrations to the end of harvest of our famous Armagh Bramley Apple.
