Randalstown Arches Festival returns for a week of community fun for everyone!

Randalstown Arches Festival Fun

Ah summer! The season of sun, picnics, outings, holidays… and ARCHES Festival! Whilst the sun, picnics, etc may not be guaranteed, you can be sure that ARCHES Festival will take place and will not disappoint.

Randalstown Arches Association, in conjunction with local community groups and businesses, has organised a week of fun activities in which there will be something for everyone.

The tried and tested events - the Walking Treasure Hunt, the Seniors Mystery Tour, the Floral Art Demonstration, the Duck Race, to name but a few - will be taking place again and details of these and the rest of the events during the week are detailed in the Festival booklet which is currently being distributed free of charge to Randalstown local households and shops.

George Graham, chairman of ARCHES, commented:

"We are very proud of our booklet which we produce and distribute every year for Festival but this would not happen without a lot of local support.

“As always we are indebted to all the local traders who advertise in the booklet faithfully year after year which covers the printing costs. And we are equally indebted to the obliging local volunteers who assist us by distributing the booklets to all households in country areas around the town. A big thank you to all of them!”

Information about all Festival events can be found in the Festival booklet and also on ARCHES website - - and Facebook page.

Every effort is made to make festival events free or at least affordable but inevitably there are costs involved in everything. ARCHES is grateful to all funding bodies who support their week of community events. ARCHES staff expressed thanks saying:

"Our funders have once again contributed much-needed support so that we can continue to deliver Festival to the community.

“We would like to thank Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, the Department of Communities and the Enkalon Foundation for again providing us with the funds to run our Festival. And we would reiterate what our chairman has said about the support of local traders and volunteers whose contribution is invaluable."
