Considering modern realities, the latest modern methods of working with information, society has retained its essence — the focus on the preservation and popularization of the cultural and historical heritage of the region.

The fans of Irish Road Bowling will be pleased during the Fair. Roadballing has long been played in Ireland with the highest demand for sport. A metal boulder, or «bullet», is thrown on rural roads (dressing course between 2-3 miles in length). The winner who throws the least number of bowls over the course distance wins. Each bowl weighs 28 ounces and is three inches in diameter. Typically, two players play against each other. The wearer is assisted by two experts. The first one acts like a golf pad and the second one shows the best place to throw the ball on the road. The second person stands as a target with their feet open and is positioned about fifty yards in front of the thrower. The thrower throws the ball like a cricket bowler. When the bowel stops, a chalk mark is placed on the road — it is from this point that the next ball is thrown. He has six referees in every game. Two behind the thrower, two in front and two in between keeping the audience back from the ball. The local community takes responsibility for road safety to ensure that traffic is not delayed during the games.

For those who like music the Stage Entertainment offers a wide range of singers and musicians. The list of all participants will be available at the official website.
