The Richhill Apple Harvest Fayre is now in its fifth year and celebrates all the very best food and drink which the region and further afield has to offer.

The apple fayre is on Saturday, October 27 and is held in the square of the beautiful and historic village of Richhill in the heart of the Orchard County.

The end of the Harvest is a time to relax and celebrate the end of a hard years' labour before the next one begins. The fayre is a chance to sample the delicious produce on sale, have something to eat, enjoy cookery demonstrations with award winning local chefs in our new Tasting Theatre, sample locally produced ciders and juices, listen to the live entertainment on offer all day and take part in the many children’s activities on offer.

This year the fayre will welcome pupils from St Catherine's College in Armagh who won the Pinkerton's Schools Cook-Off Competition at this year's Armagh County Show. The young chefs will be mentored by Chefs Mervyn Steenson of Groucho's, Best Young Chef in Britain, Barry Winter and John White from the Armagh City Hotel.

The fayre this year will see a host of events taking place for five days starting on Wednesday 24th and running through until Sunday, October 28.

On the day of the harvest fayre, live music and entertainment will be on the main stage and back by popular demand is the tug-of-war display where local people can also get involved in the challenge. We are also looking forward to welcoming some special guests for the tug-of-war There will be children’s entertainment running throughout the day, locals crafts, lots of food tasting and general craic.

This fayre has been organised by Richhill Buildings Preservation Trust by a dedicated team of volunteers. It has received financial support from Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council and local private businesses who also sponsor the event.
