Weekend of Food and Family Fun draws closer in Cookstown!

21 May 2019

The Cookstown Continental Market will return to the town centre on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June, bringing lots of delicious food, treats and entertainment to enjoy.

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 45 traders, who will set up stalls alongside local traders from the weekly street market.

The market will welcome many favourites back to the town including Dutch pancakes, Bratwurst sausages, Neapolitan pizza, crepes, waffles, sweets, Polish street food, Dutch flowers and for the third year in a row the German Beer tent.

Make sure you visit the new stalls as well where you might try some authentic Chinese food, or if you prefer something sweet, why not sample a delicious rolled ice cream. You may also enjoy browsing and purchasing a soy wax candle for the home or perhaps a Moroccan wood gift for a friend or family member, the choice is yours, with lots more to choose from over the weekend.

Visitors to the market over the two-day event will also be kept entertained with a variety of street entertainment and live music. The Swingtime Starlets and Cool Hand String Band will entertain the crowds on Saturday evening; followed by local acts the Hub Choir, Crafty Crows, Cookstown Folk Club and Banjacks on Sunday; to name a few.

Over the weekend, children can visit the Minion Madness Kids Zone where there will be face painting, balloon modelling, craft making and a photo booth to enjoy, with superheroes and princesses to amuse even the little ones.

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.
