Country Fest comes to town

Friday 6th & Saturday 7th September 2019

‘Ballymena BID and MEA Borough Council have partnered in the Ballymena Country Fest this weekend (6th & 7th September 2019). The two day event will showcase local, new and established country music talents throughout the town centre.’

So if you’re in Ballymena at the weekend look out for some great live music in lots of locations as Country Fest comes to town! You’ll find musicians at The Harmony Hub, Wellington Court and in many of the town centre shops and bars.

There’s a super line-up of contemporary country artists on both days and on Saturday at Wellington Court there’s also a FREE FAMILY EVENT. Come along and bring the kids – as well as the music, there will be kids crafts, face painting and more.

Live music is great for creating a good atmosphere, so why not come into town for what should be a great weekend and support these singers and musicians and while you’re there support our great local shops and businesses too.
