Portaferry gala. Gala Festival, Portaferry events
The varied programme of events has something for everyone: sporting and creative competitions, historic and environmental walks and talks, art and craft displays and workshops as well as music and dance events.
Competitors travel from near and far for the ever growing 10 mile race. An exciting new event this year is the popular Bingo Loco with several other new events in the pipeline. Events are either free or attract only a minimal charge, all venues are fully accessible with nearby parking facilities.
Ferry FM broadcasts details of the majority of the week’s events on-line and provides live web cam from the main Gala stage. Festivities conclude with a spectacular float and band parade.
