Festival season is upon us so today and tomorrow we are in Co Antrim at the stunning grounds of the iconic Glenarm Castle for the annual Dalriada Festival #dalfest

The Dalriada Festival which takes place at the iconic Glenarm Castle is well established as Northern Ireland’s biggest family festival of music and food and fun and games.

Powered by Purple Bricks, this event aims to recycle and share talent, renew passion and belief in the local area, regenerate excitement in our land, our people and our shared cultural heritage.

This is our first year attending and we are excited about joining other food and drink producers in the famous food and drink courtyard at the castle.

With over 30,000 people expected to attend, families will be flocking from all over today, July 13, and tomorrow, July 14 for this two day event which is packed with activities for children, music for everyone including a few 90s iconic hits belting out over the estate.

Peter Andre will play an exclusive show which will also feature Fleur East, Samantha Harvey, Atomic Kitten, D:Ream, East 17, Republica, Phats & Small. There will also be a fantastic mix of local singers and bands.

Children will enjoy all of the activities including appearances from Paw Patrol make a return.

But we are particularly looking forward to this – the Celtic Smoke International BBQ competition sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society. Food and drink is a huge element of this event, so, after a very busy weekend in Galway, Ulrich was back at The Woodlab Distillery this week making sure there’s enough of our fabulous Symphonia range for the crowds at Glenarm.

We will be in the food courtyard with a range of other producers and vendors including those in the street food market, chef demonstrations, the pop-up restaurant and there’ll be a family dining area.

We will make sure we have enough Symphonia No 1, No 2 and No 3 to keep you all going.

And, to top it off, sit back and enjoy your Symphonia because you can actually camp up for the weekend whether you want to set up your tent or relax in the 5* glamping pods.

Kids under 12 go free. The event is supported by Tourism NI and Mid and East Antrim Borough Council. We look forward to meeting you at the Dalriada Festival. Come and get your Symphonia.
