Come along on Saturday 8 June 2019 to the Ulster American Folk Park to find out more about the diversity of cultures within the Fermanagh and Omagh district. This family friendly event will celebrate and increase awareness and understanding of the rich variety of cultures, traditions and languages that are found within the district through international cuisine, crafts, music, dance and storytelling.
This year’s theme ‘Stepping it Out’ focuses on dance and visitors will be treated to a number of dance performances from a variety of traditions. There will also be an opportunity to explore ‘A Step in Time’ exhibition which tells the story of Irish dance over 125 years. Visitors will have an opportunity to sample international cuisine, take part in the ‘Family Footsteps Trail’ and complete a quiz on a tour throughout the Park.
This project is being organised by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council in partnership with National Museums NI, the Mellon Centre for Migration Studies, Libraries NI, Omagh Ethnic Communities Support Group and Goodwill Gifts Support Group and has received financial support from Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s Good Relations Programme assisted by The Executive Office.
