Puck Fair entertainment

The low-down on what to expect from Puck this year!

Your entertainment in a nutshell

Each day, a number of musical, theatrical and comedic street performances take place at various times and locations throughout the town, providing free entertainment for young and old alike.

In addition, a variety of mini-workshops in a number of craft forms, such as pipe, drum, circus and so on, will provide basic instruction on a first-come basis.

Once the sun goes down, we crank the entertainment up!

On each of the three evenings of the festival, a stage truck is driven into the Square and is set up in front of the Puck Stand.  This truck provides the stage venue for the evening’s concert.

Over the years, many well-known artistes have performed in the Square, and the venue has also provided a show-case for new and emerging talent.

[Just like the rest of the entertainment at Puck, these Open-air Concerts are free of charge, and all are welcome!]

Closing it out in style…

Midnight on the last night of Puck, after the final official performance of the festival, we close out Puck Fair with a massive fireworks display.
This exhibition is conducted according to strict safety and security regulations. It’s location, on a hillside close to the Laune, can be seen throughout the town.

Information regarding specific activities, locations and times will be listed in the official Puck Fair programme, available free of charge at the Information Office on the Plaza, from the Tourist Office, as well as in local shops and outlets around the town.  The programme is also available for download right here
