The people behind the Roscommon Lamb Festival understand that nothing comes close to the taste of succulent spring lamb cooked to perfection. This May bank holiday weekend, they will host their annual festival to celebrate that fact, but the Roscommon Lamb Festival is about more than lamb; it has developed into one of the Midland’s top agricultural, country, and family festivals.
Tasty features of this year’s event include the Best of Roscommon Food & Drink event “Real Roscommon Food” on the Friday, when experts will speak on a range of topics including the health benefits of food from Roscommon Farms, and highlighting the importance of branding in relation to food products. A celebrity chief to be announced will demonstrate the use of local produce, and there will be tastings of superb Roscommon food.
Get your fill of the best-quality locally sourced food at the massive barbecue on the Saturday, and cheer on the World Record Sheep Shearing Attempt on Sunday.
A Made in Roscommon Craft Tent and a Wool Craft Village complete what promises to be a weekend of fun for all the family.
