That Beats Banagher Festival 2019

That Beats Banagher festival takes place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of July. It is an annual festival focused around the river Shannon and the rich history of the town of Banagher. Each year the festival includes events of historical and cultural significance, workshops and demonstrations, and leisure events on the Shannon.

Banagher, Co Offaly

20th July to 21st July 2019

This year activities include a local food and craft market, the reopening of the popular Martello Tower Bookshop, afternoon tea, sporting events, and an eclectic range of workshops and courses.

Following an evening of live music alongside the river, Saturday evening concludes with a fireworks display. Sunday is packed with events on the Shannon, including Zorbing, and open Canadian Canoeing. The big highlight though is the Galway Community circus on Sunday, and if you’re lucky you may glimpse ‘Monsieur Les Pompadu’ around the town. You can’t miss him though, he’s very very very tall.

Come along and enjoy a fun weekend on the Shannon.
