Date: date tbc but usually in July
It’s time for all the Teddies to pack up a picnic and bring their children to Sligo Folk Park for the Teddy Bear Picnic. Riverstown will be the Teddy capital of the northwest as mini picnickers and their furry friends have Teddy-themed crafts, fun and games of all sorts.
The giant Teddy Bear greets everyone on arrival and just loves getting into selfies too. From that moment on, it’s a day filled with action and activity, all teddy-themed of course! Make a teddy name badge and your very own teddy headband. Do some teddy colouring and decorate a teddy biscuit or two. Everyone, young and old will love feeding the hens and meeting new arrivals JP the goat and giant Flemish rabbits. There will be story telling, as well as face painting and games.
Activities are spread around the 6-acre site, some indoors and some outside. The Fairy Village will also be open to welcome little visitors (and teddies too, of course).
If your favourite Teddy is feeling under the weather, don’t despair – the Teddy Bears’ Hospital will be open. Soon all the bears will be well enough to join in the Treasure Hunt where everyone follows the fun clues to claim their goodie bag.
Booking for the Sligo Folk Park Teddy Bear Picnic is necessary. Tickets are priced €10 per child and €5 per adult.
