Dungannon Town Centre Set to Host Outdoor First Festive Food Fair

Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough Council in partnership with Dungannon Regeneration Partnership (DRP) and Dungannon Traders Association are prepping for the town’s first outdoor artisan Christmas Food Fair in Market Square, which will showcase local produce at its finest.

The fair will run for three days from Friday 12th to Sunday 14th December alongside late night shopping, street entertainment and it will incorporate a variety of Christmas treats to offer a unique visitor experience.

Mayor of Dungannon & South Tyrone Borough Council, Councillor Roger Burton said “We are excited about Dungannon’s first outdoor food fair, which is situated in our newly completed civic space at Market Square. It will offer visitors the chance to indulge in some flavoursome treats and cherry pick unique gifts for Christmas. Foodie fans will be delighted with treats including chocolate, mince pies, hot food, cordials, homemade tray bakes, festive flowers and more.

A range of events happening in the town throughout December will promote Dungannon as a retail centre of excellence and a unique destination for all to enjoy. Late night shopping, lots of free car parking, the artisan food fair and the £2,500 Golden Ticket competition are just some of the reasons that Dungannon certainly has festive appeal this year.
