Cookstown goes Continental!

02 May 2019

Cookstown goes continental next month when the food and flavours, sights and sounds of Europe and beyond return to the town centre for two days on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June!

Organised by Mid Ulster District Council, in partnership with Cookstown Town Centre Forum, the continental market is part of Market Place Europe’s spring tour, and will feature over 40 traders from as far afield as Morocco, India, Belgium, France, Russia, Holland, Spain and China, who will set up stalls alongside local traders from the weekly street market.

As well as mouth-watering dishes, from freshly made Paella to delicious Bratwurst Sausages, visitors to the market over the two day event will also be kept entertained with a variety of street entertainment and live music, plus a Minion Madness Kids Zone!

The continental market takes place along William Street in Cookstown town centre from Saturday 1 June (9am – 9pm) and Sunday 2 June (11am - 6pm).


To facilitate the expected increased visitor numbers in a safe environment, a road closure will be in place along William Street from 6.30pm on Friday 31 May through to approximately 10pm on Sunday 2 June 2019. The road closure will be in place from the Orritor Street/Coagh Street junction to the Burn Road/James Street junction.
